What did you do prior to Hanover? Prior to Hanover, I worked in admission at a small, private institution working with events, student ambassadors, and recruiting.

What do you love about Hanover? I love the community at Hanover. I can walk across campus and know that I will pass a friendly face and feel safe.

What's your favorite place on campus or in Madison? My favorite place in Madison is the fountain at Broadway. I love visiting the farmer’s market in the summer!

What are some of your interests, and what sort of things keep you busy? I love being around my family and friends, but also spend a lot of time watching reality TV!

What's your pump-up song? “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield

Is there anything that you've always wanted to do but never have? It’s a dream of mine to ride in a hot air balloon!

If you could visit one place in the world, where would it be - and why? I’ve wanted to visit Greece ever since I watched Mamma Mia!

What's something that your coworkers might not know about you? I sang growing up and recorded a CD in high school with my church. The songs come on sometimes when I shuffle my music and it always startles me to hear myself through my phone!

What advice would you give to students who are navigating the college search process? Visit, visit, visit! There’s no better way to figure out if a school is right for you than by spending time on campus, meeting current students, and connecting with faculty and staff members.
