Why do you volunteer at ISRHML:
I think it is important to be connected & provide support to others when we can

What do you like about volunteering at ISRHML:
Meeting new people & hearing about cool new research

Working on my research. Or in my down time I like to be outdoors as much as possible (running, cycling, and rollerskating (which is new)) and stay connected to loved ones

I can't whistle or sing very well... but I love to dance

There is no way to do this perfectly. Sometimes one area of my life (family, friends, work, self-care) gets more attention than others... but I try to check on each aspect regularly and adjust accordingly
