Hobbies: I love going to baseball games at Yankee Stadium, enjoy seeing my favorite singers Ingrid Michaelson and Amos Lee in concert, and am a huge fan of the 80s TV shows Matlock, Murder She Wrote, and Magnum P.I.!
Favorite thing about college: College was an awesome time of new adventures for me, as I studied abroad in Belize and England, worked in Yellowstone National Park, and backpacked around Europe. My time in graduate school was memorable, as I was introduced to the crazy fun experience of SEC football.
Favorite thing about being at Guilford: I love working with prospective students, learning their stories, and connecting them with faculty, current students, and alumni in the Guilford community. My favorite place on campus is the Carnegie Room in the Hege Library and I love eating in the dining hall (yum yum!) when I’m back at Guilford.
