What is one thing you always try to teach your students?
"I am just like them, really. It’s just a matter of them finding their passion, and I have told that to my advisees and my students. Something along the way is going to, bing, ring the bell and then you’re going to realize that’s for you and then you’ve got to know that that’s what you have to go after. I can remember the first time I actually saw a live starfish or a live sea anemone. I had taught about some of this stuff long before I actually ever saw some of this and I just thought, wow, it’s not some pickled thing in a jar. It’s real, it’s just so cool. That kind of excitement is out there.”

“With women it was always be a nurse, a teacher, a social worker. It’s hard for women to reach out and find these different things because that’s what their parents tell them. That’s what they know. There are so many other things that you can be.”
