About me: I joined the Marywood Admissions Staff in June, 2019. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics with minors in Science and Comprehensive Social Science from Marywood in January, 2017. I earned my Master's of Public Administration degree from Marywood in August, 2018. I am from Gouldsboro, Pennsylvania where I currently reside.
My interests: I love to travel whenever I get the chance! Out of all the places I have been so far, Iceland is my favorite. I plan on going back there as soon as I can! I also love the mountains and spending my time kayaking or hiking.
My favorite thing about Marywood: My favorite thing about Marywood is that it feels like home. Since my first semester on campus in 2013, I have felt how amazing the Marywood community really is. Marywood is a network of people who really care about each other and want to see each other grow.
My favorite place at Marywood: The second floor of the Learning Commons. The large windows allow you to get a full view of the mountains surrounding the valley!
You’d never guess: I absolutely love coffee and like to think of myself as a coffee connoisseur. I know how to brew coffee via different brewing methods and study coffee and it’s origins in my spare time. I also love traveling to local coffee shops that roast their own coffee to taste new and exciting coffees!
Best advice: Be true to who you are. Life will take you a million and one different directions and as long as you stay true to yourself, you’ll be happy at the end of the day. In college, find activities and a program that fits your personality and that will help you stay true to yourself.
