Fun Facts

The best advice Dr. Penaloza Arteaga has ever received is from Randy Pausch’s “The Last Lecture.” “Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted. And experience is often the most valuable thing you have to offer.”

Not everyone knows this about her, but she loves football. During football season, she spends all of Sunday calling/watching the games with her brother.

Her guilty pleasure is cookies-and-cream ice cream.
