Why did you choose to work at Barnard?
As a graduate of a women's college myself, I was so excited to work in an Admissions Office that strives to educate, support, and champion young leaders! I also can't help but mention the incredible, warm, dynamic, and curious Barnard community that embraced me from the get-go.
What is your favorite book?
This is a tough one! I make a point of reading A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara once a year because it's such a beautiful book. But, recently, I couldn't put down Ariadne by Jennifer Saint & Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner!
What is your favorite thing to do in NYC?
I love going to late-night comedy shows and free exercise classes around the city as a way to make new friends.
What is your favorite place on campus?
The tables in front of Milbank Hall! They're such an idyllic lunch spot and city escape.
What is a random fun fact about yourself?
If I could do anything, I would love to be a full-time hot yoga instructor!
