Volunteer experience: I have served on either the board or as a committee member of several professional societies. My experience includes chairing annual meetings (i.e., 2011 ASLO Winter meeting in Puerto Rico), serving as an associate editor of several society journals, and participating in and chairing society committees. My most recent efforts have included developing better organization and more effective communication among a variety of board committees.
