How long at MUSC: 10 years.
Where were you born: Buenos
Aires, Argentina. I grew up in France until my family immigrated to
Boston when I was 12 years old. My husband and I moved here after 10
years in Bogota, Colombia, to be closer to my parents.
Name an outstanding person at MUSC:
Christine VonKolnitz Cooley started the recycling program here in 1995
and thanks to her efforts, MUSC now recycles 28 percent of all its
What are your goals for recycling:
Increased awareness of environmental issues. I would like to see more
green buildings that use renewable energy sources like solar panels or
wind tubes; any empty rooms in the dark indicate energy
Pet peeve: People who put trash
in the recycling bin.
Something you do that is silly but
really fun: Ride my bike with no hands singing at the top of my
lungs. Great way to relieve stress after work.
How do you spend your free time:
We go out every weekend on our family sailboat.
Words of advice: Our health and
that of our children depends on the future health of our environment
and we must do everything that we can to protect it.
