About your Admission Counselor

Pronouns: She, her, hers

Favorite College Memory:

One of my favorite memories is performing in the show choir, Live In Color. We sang musical theatre and pop songs while dancing, and I even got to choreograph for some of the shows! I loved getting the chance to perform with my friends, and we always tried to make our shows as fun as possible for the audiences watching.

Favorite Subject in College:

My two majors – psychology and theatre! I love learning about why our minds work the way they do, and being able to then express that onstage can be really invigorating and powerful. One of my final psychology projects in college was actually a devised performance piece!

Favorite Summer Activity:

Spending time with friends and family, especially outdoors. The summer weather is beautiful here, and it’s easy to spend hours outdoors hiking, going to the farmers market, having a picnic, or just enjoying the sunshine with friends.

Favorite Quote:

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself” - George Bernard Shaw
