Favorite Place on Campus: When it’s nice out I love to sit by the mill stream and read or talk with my friends. When it’s raining I’ll spend time in the math hearth (Ford Hall) or the Bistro.

Favorite Place in Salem: I love The Governors Cup. It’s this little coffee shop just a few blocks from campus with the best chai latte I’ve ever had and a little loft where I write all my final papers.


  • Swimming Swimming Swimming, Especially in the Ocean!
  • Sewing, I’ve done a lot of costume work for theatres and I have a super elaborate halloween getup every year (The photo above is me as Midge from the marvelous Mrs. Masiel last year)
