I come from a big family with too many aunts, uncles and cousins to count. Currently, I live with my fiancé (Colin), our cat (Lucky), and our dog (Dash).

What do you enjoy most about your role as a student success advisor?

My favorite part is seeing how much growth happens in such a short period of time. Being able to work with students as they develop personally, professionally, and academically is a privilege.

What’s your favorite spot on the College of Saint Mary campus?

I like the plaza or the Hot Spot on the third floor of Walsh Hall!

What was your favorite class in college?

I loved my Sociology and Gerontology courses in undergrad. I love learning about people and the things that influence who we are.

What’s the latest book you’ve read?

“The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I was pressured by the internet and it did not disappoint!

What’s your favorite TV show or movie?

People judge me, but I love the movie “Forrest Gump.” I could probably watch it a million times.

What’s one thing that someone might not know about you?
