Why I chose to be a part of the Lafayette community: I enjoyed a tremendous college experience and always have loved visiting campuses all over this country – even with my own kids! Lafayette College has so much to offer. I enjoy meeting students from all walks of life and exploring how Lafayette can fit into their plans. If I can help make an opaque process easier for any high schooler or potential transfer student, I’m happy to help.
Years at Lafayette: 1997-1999; 2006 to present
College major: Business Administration
Favorite sports team: Lafayette Leopards of course! (or the Ohio State Buckeyes)
Favorite vacation spot: Martha’s Vineyard
Favorite book: Impossible to choose just one, but my favorite recent read was All the Light We Cannot See (Doerr). Loved it!
Favorite movie: Also impossible to choose just one – or even one genre! As for the classics, I think To Kill a Mockingbird is an almost perfect film. I’ve been lucky enough to attend the Telluride Film Festival several times, most recently in 2014, and my favorite films that year were The Imitation Game and Birdman. Another real gem was Diplomacy, an acting tour de force.
Favorite musical: Sweeney Todd. The original Broadway production was absolutely amazing, but I enjoyed John Doyle’s much smaller revival as well.
Favorite Easton restaurant: Sette Luna. It’s an arugula salad on a delicious grilled crust.
Favorite campus spot: The Quad on 1st year move-in day – so much energy, emotion and excitement!
Hobbies and interests: I love reading, movies, theater, dance, walking/hiking, travel and attending sports events, especially baseball and basketball.
Fun fact about me: I’m the proud mother of three wonderful, very different, young adults, the oldest of whom attended Lafayette College.
