About me: I joined the Marywood Admissions team in February 2018. I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies and a minor in Psychology. I'm also a very proud Mom to my daughter, Vera.
My interests: I love spending time with my family and friends. During the summer I spend most of my free time at Lake Wallenpaupack. Whether I'm boating, swimming, or fishing, it's one of my favorite places to be!
My favorite thing about Marywood: Everyone is so pleasant and welcoming. From the faculty and staff to the students, you can’t walk around campus without getting a friendly hello.
My favorite place at Marywood: The entire campus at Marywood is beautiful. But, if I had to narrow it down, I would say the Learning Commons. Whether it is enjoying a Starbucks tea or just taking in the beautiful view of the mountains, it is a cozy place to be.
You’d never guess: I like to go trout fishing. It's something I get to enjoy doing with my Dad and Husband and will continue to be by the stream every opening day in April!
Best advice: Ask questions! This is your investment and your future. Whether you are confirming the application process with your admissions counselor or learning more about the field from faculty, don’t be afraid to ask any and all questions you may have.
