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 just returned from the 2018 Telluride Film Festival and strongly recommend you look out for First Man, Front Runner and a marvelous 4 hour documentary on Watergate (rumor is that it will appear in 4 one-hour installments on the History Channel).
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.
