  • Where did you grow up?

    I grew up in a small, remote farming town in north-central Pennsylvania. Growing up in the country taught me to love and cherish the outdoors- the solitude, the simplicity, the peace. I grew up without TV thus most of my childhood was spent exploring the 500 acres that surrounded our home.

  • Tell us about your family.

    My mother is an artist who decided to go back to school for counseling/psych but continued to pour art into all aspects of her life, while my father is a physician who loves all things outdoors and adventure. I also have an older sister who is an RN and just welcomed her first child.

  • Share something about yourself that might surprise people.

    When asked as a child what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would always say a racecar driver. I still have yet to let the dream go, maybe someday…

  • Briefly describe your work experience.

    Throughout college I taught a drug and alcohol education program and volunteered over 1,000 hours on a crisis hotline.

  • If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?

    As a child, my grandparents had a house in the Cayman Islands. Unfortunately, they sold their home years ago but I would love to go back someday and relive the magic of that island as an adult.

  • What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

    I enjoy spending time with the people I love and prefer to be outdoors, exploring the beautiful state in which I live. I also love reading, art, and music.

  • What draws you most to this type of work?

    I know leaving work each night that I have made a difference in the lives of the students I work with, no matter how small that impact might be, it gives me purpose and fulfillment in life.
