Why I Chose Lourdes: I chose Lourdes because this school has an excellent reputation in the area. After graduating with my Master’s in Student Affairs, I knew I wanted to stay in the Toledo area to keep my friends and family close. I wanted to work for a small, private school which is genuinely student centered – and I found that here at Lourdes! I also live in Sylvania and I love this small, close-knit community! It’s just like family.
Hobbies/Interests: I love to garden and spoil my rescue dog, Gunner. I also like to try new recipes, decorate and plan for parties, obsess over Pinterest and HGTV, support local businesses, attend baseball games, and spend time with my friends and loved ones!
Favorite Quotes: “If you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.” Conan O’Brien, “When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life.”
Life Ambitions: I want to be kind to others, meet people where they’re at, and inspire others to follow their dreams—whatever those might be!
