Dr. Marmolejo's interests are diverse. She enjoys learning something new everyday. She views education not only as her job but also as a vehicle that allows clear thinking and right doing in all aspects of life. She is especially attracted to science, other cultures, places, and peoples. In addition, she is passionate about healthy nutrition, physical exercise, and music. But, she adds, "What I love most is watching how my children grow everyday, exploring parenting strategies to help them blossom, and nurturing my family."
