Statement: I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the Philadelphia Section of the American Chemical Society. The Section supports many worthwhile efforts in our community, and I am committed to working to enhance existing programs and widen participation in Section activities. I am eager to find new ways to strengthen communications between members of the Section beyond periodic meetings, since every member has the potential to be a resource for others. Since our Section is uniquely positioned to develop scientific literacy in our region, I am also interested in exploring innovative approaches to communicate chemistry broadly, and ensure our discipline is inclusive and welcoming to people of all backgrounds.
