Dr. Romero will live in the new Quad with his wife Sarah Wolff-Romero and two sons, Alec (11) and Elias (8). Ms. Wolff-Romero is a Librarian and English Teacher at a nearby high school, and their sons attend East End schools and love the prospect of living on campus. Alec is excited about all things UH sports, while his brother Elias is eager to embrace the arts on campus. They are a family of many hobbies. Dr. Romero is an avid cook and bread baker, Ms. Wolff-Romero is a quilter who enjoys a wide range of crafts, and the boys love camping, playing games, music, art, and exploring Houston. Together they look forward to meeting and sharing their interests with residents in the new Quad.
