Why did you choose to work at Barnard?
I chose to work at Barnard because as a student, I was consistently inspired, challenged, and encouraged by my peers, professors, and community. I hope to help others find this special place and grow just as I did. I deeply believe in Barnard’s mission of creating the next generation of women leaders who are empathetic and driven.
What is your favorite book?
My favorite book is Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning. It never fails to remind me of how powerful the human mind is and how we can overcome great obstacles with hope, courage, and strength.
What is your favorite thing to do in NYC?
My favorite thing to do in the city is to explore the many cafes, museums, and book stores there are! There seems to be almost endless possibilities to what you can see or experience throughout the city.
What is your favorite place on campus?
My favorite place on campus is the lawn in front of the Milstein Center. During the fall and spring, it’s perfect for hanging out with friends, reading a good book, or enjoying lunch outside
What is a random fun fact about yourself?
I am a dual American and Canadian citizen! My family spent winter break driving up from Georgia to Toronto, Canada to spend time with extended family.
