A Little About Me

Favorite place on campus: As a student, if I wasn’t in the pool or in the dining hall, you would find me in the library. I loved that it’s a common space – people come here to work and study, but also to quietly socialize.

Favorite place to eat in Lexington: Big fan of Napa Thai, Bistro on Main, and Sweet Things.

Favorite part of my W&L experience: My favorite part of W&L was the opportunity to meaningfully “do it all” – find and explore my academic passions, be on an athletic team, join a sorority, serve the community, lead student organizations, study abroad, and so much more. I was able to do all of that while making lifelong friendships.

Favorite W&L event: Fancy Dress is always a fun time. I also loved midnight breakfast in the Marketplace and when they would bring in therapy dogs for students.

What makes Lexington unique? Lexington is such a friendly and welcoming place. Alumni of all class years jump at the chance to come back to Lexington. The campus may look a little different each visit and some of the stores on Main Street may change, but the “feeling” of Lexington is home for so many.

Favorite thing to do outside work? I enjoy exercising, practicing yoga, reading, and spending time with my cat, Monty.
