What do you enjoy about working with working professional students?
I most enjoy working with professional students, as I continually find inspiration in their commitment to learning and their desire to further develop their knowledge, skills, and expertise while balancing the many facets of life.
What is your best piece of advice for prospective students?
My best piece of advice for prospective students is to always write an optional essay
, if the opportunity presents itself. Use that space to tell the admissions committee not only who you are, but how you arrived at the person you are today or how far you have come personally and professionally.
What is one fun fact about you?
One fun fact about me is how much I love board games. Not just your typical games such as Monopoly or Catchphrase, which I do love, but also games such as Ticket to Ride, Potion Explosion, Dominion, The Quacks of Quedlinburg, and Coup.
What is something you are currently watching/reading/listening to?
Some of my favorite shows right now are “The Night Agent,” “Succession,” and “Abbott Elementary.” I am currently reading The Midnight Library by Matt Haig, and my next book will be Stone Blind by Natalie Haynes. As for music, I am currently listening to Kelly Clarkson’s “Meaning of Life” album, new music from the Jonas Brothers, and anything by Lizzo.
What are you looking forward to in the summer months?
This summer, I am looking forward to breaking out the charcoal grill, taking a beach trip, going to Busch Gardens, 4th of July fireworks, and warm summer nights spent with friends.
