Favorite quote: “We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.” – Mother Teresa

Why I Chose Lourdes: I came to Lourdes direct from High School in 2006. During my undergrad I have had the pleasure of watching Lourdes grow; I have also grown within that time as well. I started as an intern for the Admissions office in 2009, then when I decided to pursue my MBA at Lourdes my position changed to a Graduate Assistant. Now as an Admissions Coordinator I get to be a part of one of the best aspects of Lourdes: The Students! Meeting and interacting with so many people on a daily basis makes my love for Lourdes grow only that much more.

Hobbies/Interests:Cheer and dance have been a major part of my life for a total of 18 years. This is a passion that inspires me every day. In the age of technology in my spare time (when I’m not reading about current events) I watch Youtube and sometimes lose track of time. I try to spend as much time surrounded by my family and friends cherishing little moments.
