The Power List 2021 – Plant Science Pioneers

Director and Founder, Agricultural Genomics Foundation and Research Associate, University of Colorado, Boulder, USA

Inspirational people: ​The sunrise movement, justice democrats, and my fellow coworkers at United Campus Workers Colorado.

Advice to my younger self: You have to work harder than you think. You will probably never get your top choice. Try to slow down and be patient – life is not a straight, clear path but full of twists and turns.

Outside interests: ​I exercise most days, doing yoga, swimming, biking (weather dependent), and elliptical. I like gardening in the summer, and I watch movies and do puzzles with my kid.
