“One of the fantastic parts about this job is working with students…It’s been my real privilege to work with students from all over the world. So I’m a Buffalonian, here I am at UB, but I get to work with people from Iran, India, Trinidad, China, a couple from the U.S.…12 different countries. That’s just a fantastic experience.

You see the differences in the culture and you get to understand that, but you also get to see that people are very much the same too. I’ve had hardworking students really dedicated to what they’re doing and it just makes it a joy to work with them. That’s been one of the truly outstanding parts of my job, being able to work with people from all over the world.”
