This is my family and me 2 years ago.
And here's the other part of the family...Teddy!!! He's
10 months old in this shot.
I thought this was a nice "mother-daughter" Kodak moment
in our backyard in FL--taken on March 9, 2002:)!
And a sweet "father-daughter" Kodak moment at
Jacksonville University on Dec. 15, 2001:)!
But of course I can't forget a "sisters" pose! This was
taken in December of 2001!
Here's one of my dearest friends, Mekka, and her lovely
family: Hugh, Sam, and Salima.
Here are who Teddy calls "aunt" Jingshu (my dear
encourager) and "uncle" Liang (Jingshu's husband) infront of Duke's
Here's Mekka and me in FL on Dec. 18, 2001.

This is my friend and her husband, Ozlem and David
Ergisi. They were wed on April 9, 2000. Ozlem and I have
known each other for almost 10 years!
Here's Ozlem and me in FL on Dec. 20, 2001.
This shot was taken at my old high school in FL on
December 17, 2001. Dr. Kalna is my favorite teacher from high school,
and he continues to teach computer programming and
applications today! He's my mentor, friend, and second dad.
Here's a shot of my grandad, sister, and me in
Florence and I have been friends since our freshman year
together at JU.
Now here's my favorite family...well, at least the
kid-part of the family. From left: Caitlyn, Michael, Shannon, and
Christopher. I've been babysitting them for years and years to the
point where they're like my own family. By the way, this was at
Halloween, so Caitlyn doesn't REALLY look like one of the Adams'
This is my first roommate, Henrike (she's from Germany),
my precious Teddy at 3 months old, and myself in Durham's record
snowfall! It was fun while it lasted...can you believe a Floridian's
Here's Kristy and me at my college graduation in 1999.
We had a record cold temperature that day in May! What happened to
the warm, sunshine state;)! Kristy is now at Pharmacy school in UF.
I've known Cathie for about 5 years--and she was wed to
Jamie in April of 2001!
Here's a friend from high school that I still keep in
touch with, Smitha, and her husband, Joe, on their wedding day in 2003!
Here's the Statistics group on a bowling adventure in
May of 2000. Statisticians DO know how to have fun, too, you know:)!
This is half of my Biostatistics class at Duke from Summer of 2001!
...And this is the other half of the class;)!
This is my first class I have taught at Duke--from the
first summer session of 2000. It's STA 110A: Statistics and Data
Analysis, and boy did we have fun...well, I did and I hope they did
These are some kids I've known for 9 years...well,
except the youngest one up front who's only 5 years old! My sister,
Karen, is also enjoying Daytona Beach with us here!
OK...now for some scenic pictures!!! Here is one of my
favorite spots in Jacksonville, FL. It's at Ft. Caroline and it's nothing
fancy...just a million dollar view!!!
And speaking of million dollar views...here's the view
from our vacation spot in Daytona Beach, FL! Aren't sunrises and
sunsets the greatest:)!
Here's another picture from FL, but this time it's Daytona Beach,
another one of my favorite spots. My family and I have been going there
every year for vacation for 20 years, so it's almost like a second
home to me.
...And another view of Daytona Beach!
This is the Potomac River at Great Falls Park in Maryland.
Now I want to show you scenes from Duke (or very near-by) throughout
the various seasons...the first one is of the Duke Gardens in the
prime of Spring. Tulips are some of my favorite flowers:)!
And now we'll move on to summer and the scenic drive through campus...
And what about those Autumn leaves...
And finally, a winter wonderland here on the main quad of campus...
Finally, this is me at night;)...
Want to see some colorful mountain pictures from
