How long have you been at SMCM?
I graduated St. Mary’s in 2012, and began working at the school as an Admissions Counselor in July of 2013.
What path led you to St. Mary’s?
I attended high school in Ohio, but a family friend graduated from SMCM in the 1980’s and encouraged me to apply. After I visited the campus on an Accepted Student Day I knew I wanted to attend the school.
What do you do by day?
Well, this winter, I spent most days reading application files.
What do you do with your evenings/weekends?
Visit friends, watch Arrested Development, go on bike rides, runs, etc.
What is your favorite off-campus lunch spot?
Hmmm. It is definitely a toss-up between St. James Deli, Blue Wind, Bollywood, and the Coffee Quarter. They are all so delicious!
What would colleagues be surprised to find out about you?
I got third place in the National Junior Olympics 5k race walking event when I was 14. That is probably my biggest/weirdest claim to fame.
What is the most interesting/surprising job you’ve ever had?
Once I worked on a Christmas tree farm with my friends. I was fifteen at the time, and I was pretty bad
at it. I was fired about a month in when I accidentally mowed over a field of baby Christmas trees.
