Dr. Mohammadi grew up overlooking Lake Anderson in Morgan Hill, CA, a small town about 8 miles east of Santa Cruz. Being so close to the Sierra's and the Pacific, she sent a great deal of time outdoors.

My passions include travel, performance art, and culture. I spent some time backpacking across Western and Eastern Europe, Central America, the Caribbean and portions of Northern Africa and the Middle East. But hands down one of my favorite travel experiences was when I took a year off college and hostel hopped the United States. This is a breathtaking country. I still don't know if I can begin to compare Hawaii with the Grand Canyon with the Flat Irons.

I had the fortunate enough to combine and focus on travel into my academic career. For my doctoral research, I traveled to Iran and lived in several regions of the country interviewing women. I went from the small lime huts of Kandovan to the metropolis of Tehran and a few places in between.

For college, I attended the University of California at Berkeley, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, San Francisco State University, and Louisiana State University Baton Rouge. I hope someday to write children’s books, encourage the young people of the world to embrace cultural diversity, and hold season tickets to LSU football! GEAUX TIGERS!
