About Me: I am originally from the D.C. area, but I have lived in the south now for over six years! In my spare time you'll find me reading, watching movies, kayaking, and scuba diving when the water is warm. Recently, I had the opportunity to work at the happiest place on earth, Disney's Animal Kingdom, as a Wilderness Explorer! 

Favorite Quote: "Success isn't about how much money you make, it's about the difference you make in people's lives." - Michelle Obama

Advice to Students: My advice to students comes from a quote, "change happens when we're uncomfortable". Push yourself to try new things & experiences, college is one of the safest places to spread your wings & fly! 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
