FROM THE FALL 2017 ISSUE
[Q] What are you anticipating most for your new life in South Central Texas?
[A] I am really excited to get to know the students, campus, and community. I am especially excited about the culture in San Antonio. It reminds me of Boston, where I grew up: multicultural and big and vibrant with fascinating histories going back many hundreds of years. I—both of us, actually—can’t wait to dive in!
The Way Forward
Taking a look to the future of UTSA with the arrival of Taylor Eighmy, our sixth president.
We really want to try progressive Mexican culinaria, at a place like Mixtli. I have not had a proper taco since I left Texas [in 2012] and want to fix that.
There are so many great museums in San Antonio too. I don’t even know where to start.
I even want to run the 5K on campus with our dog Albus.
Also, one of my biggest passions is community service. I work with the organization CASA—Court Appointed Special Advocates—and other non-profits. And I have really enjoyed supporting refugee families.
Basically, I want to engage with San Antonio in the same ways I’ve been involved in activities in the other cities where we’ve lived.
