I grew up in Saint Paul, MN, where I developed a thick skin for cold weather. Outside of astronomy, I have played soccer for most of my life. In college, I played for the Penn Women’s Club Soccer Team, where we reached the NIRSA national club tournament twice. I currently play soccer with the Chicago Fire Rec soccer league on weekends in Chicago.
I’m also a huge Game of Thrones fan– one of my life goals is to visit all the major Game of Thrones filming sites.
