Personal Sketch

Dr. Pulliam's two children and granddaughters keep her busy. Her daughter received her Masters in Environmental Engineering at OSU-Tulsa and is an environmental scientist in Oklahoma City. Her son received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech and now lives in Florida. A long-time Trekkie, she was quite upset when Star Trek Enterprise went out of production. She now watches all of the NCISs and way too much HGTV. Visits to the weight room, Lions Club and singing in the church choir occupy her spare time since driving to Oklahoma City to watch her granddaughters play soccer does not happen often enough.
