Why have you chosen to be part of the Marywood Alumni Association Board of Directors?

I chose to be a member of the Marywood Alumni Association because I value the education I received at Marywood. It has served me well in my career and I want to reach out to new, prospective, current, and alumni about the amazing benefits of my Marywood education.

What is your favorite memory from your time as a student at Marywood University?

My favorite memory was being a cheerleader for basketball and we had a big pep rally to kick off Midnight Madness.

What advice would you give a student attending Marywood?

Work hard, play hard. The next four years will shape who you are and what you will bring to society. Marywood will prepare you for a career in any major.

Cheerleader, Work study in Madonna Hall at the font desk, and Student Government Association-all 4 years of my BSW education.

What is a fun fact about yourself?

A fun fact about myself is that I have taken dance lessons since I was six years old and I continue to take dance lessons each week.
