Professional Development

The past two years have been a flurry of professional development. Many of my activities have centered around writing & editing and international education. Drawing on my experiences as a Fulbright awardee, I presented on international experiences and fellowships on panels through the Wasserman Center for Career Development, and wrote on issues to consider before going abroad. This year, I co-taught a section of new international graduate student orientation for Steinhardt and continued my work with the Office of Global Services. Trainings and certifications have ranged student issues from Mental Health, Title IX investigation, Bystander Intervention, and Interfaith Allyship. As an enthusiastic learner, I seek out opportunities to learn ideas and skills beyond my comfort zone: “A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” — Robert Heinlein
