A Sunny Disposition

Professor of Biology Aparna Palmer, PhD

Every Friday the CMUnow Special Edition podcast features outstanding faculty on the Colorado Mesa University and Western Colorado Community College campuses. This week co-hosts Kelsey Coleman and David Ludlam speak with Dr. Aparna Palmer about what it was like growing up in India and her journey immigrating to the United States at just eight years old. Palmer is the assistant vice president for academic affairs for student and faculty success and a biology professor. On the podcast she talks about how a friendship changed her life, a turning point she had in college that led to her sunny disposition and what life was like for her family in a new country.
