Despite still being in the training process when remote learning and working began, Deborah did a fantastic job of adjusting while still learning new skills and supporting the School. Learn more about Deborah in the interview below!

What’s one thing you like about working remotely?
I love that I can work from the comfort of my own home. I use a couch chair at my desk and now that the weather is a bit colder, I can snuggle up in my sweats and blanket while working. It’s also pretty great to have easy access to snacks while I work.
What’s the best thing about your job?
At the moment, the human interaction, even though it’s remote and mostly through text or calls. I love working with people and I’m lucky to be able to work with an amazing group of people.
What 3 words would you use to describe UCI BioSci?
Lively, Solid, Science-y
Have you binged any TV shows since quarantine started? What’s your favorite?
The Queen’s Gambit is hands down my favorite show of all time. I came across it when my brother started watching the first episode. I went downstairs to grab a snack, but I never made it back to my room. I was hooked and we binged the entire show that night.
Who’s your favorite singer?
I can best answer this with a list of some of my current favorite songs. Enjoy 🙂
