Where are you from originally?
I'm from Acton, California, a tiny desert town in Los Angeles County.
Why Stony Brook?
I was referred to Stony Brook by my undergraduate mentor. Considering my interest in postwar through contemporary art history as well as my personality, she thought I would work well with Professor Katy Siegel; she was right :)
On her favorite class:
My favorite class as a graduate student was WGS 601, Feminist Theory, with Liz Montegary. I enrolled in this seminar my first semester on a fluke because I needed four classes. I was terrified I would be out of place, I knew nothing but the basics of Feminism; however, through Liz's guidance and confidence in me, this seminar absolutely changed my life and the way I perceive the world. I am graduating with a certificate in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies because of this course, and I am especially proud of this achievement.
