Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology Welcomes New Staff Members
(This month, E-Insight begins a new section on staff profiles. All new hires to the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences are encouraged to share a little bit about themselves with their colleagues. As a test run, we have focused on the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology. We can make any needed adjustments and then, next month, go College-wide. If you have any comments or suggestions, please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org .)

Ann is married and has two adult children. She is a graduate of CSU, receiving her master's of science degree in 1977. She loves being out-of-doors whether it's gardening, hiking, skiing or playing tennis. She also enjoys reading, indoor plants (including an orchid collection, bonsai trees and other tropical plants), and traveling.

Jared came to Colorado 11 years ago with his mother, leaving the rest of the family behind in California. He's involved in indoor soccer clubs, enjoys snowboarding in the winter, and camping and hiking in the summer. As one who left the land of shorts and sandals for the land of boots and three layers of clothes -- after an initial period of adjustment -- he's come to love Fort Collins and Colorado.
Katrina is married - her husband's name is David - and in her spare time she enjoys bicycling, gardening and animal rescue work. Most recently, she spent six weeks in Louisiana assisting a humane organization with hurricane victims.
