What are you most excited about in your new role? “Relationships!” Moiz replied immediately. She values being visible and accessible to both staff and students. As she walked the halls, she greeted each person with a joyful “Happy Thursday! Have a wonderful day!” She is proud of the staff’s work to build community during the first weeks of school, both among each other with a “Husky Pride Olympics” and with students, too, through a “Husky Cup Challenge.”

She loves to showcase the many paths to success that staff help students explore. Moiz notes that “we celebrate what we are doing, the active engagement that is taking place.”

What do you like to do when you are not working? Moiz is a reader and chooses titles depending on her current interests. She and her husband, Scott Carvo, recently celebrated 25 years of marriage and also the wedding of their son, Noor Carvo, and daughter-in-law Ikhlas Hakeem. Her friends bring her joy, too; it’s a circle of friends, she said, because each one cares for the others. 

‘We celebrate what we are doing, the active engagement that is taking place.’
