"At its best, a liberal arts environment is where students and faculty alike achieve their full potential. Trinity understands that students learn more and retain more when they interact with scholars and teachers who are passionate about what they do and can help students find their own passion.

At Trinity I have opportunities to partner with students and share ideas, support a core set of human values, show my enthusiasm for neuroscience research, and facilitate students moving on from Trinity feeling self-empowered to have a positive impact on their health and on local and global issues facing us today."
