Favorite quotes:
“A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties.” -Harry Truman

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” –Marianne Williamson

Favorite Spokane activities:
Patronizing the local coffee shops and bakeries in town and having picnics at Manito Park

Favorite thing about Whitworth:
Watching the continued growth in diversity develop on this campus through our amazing student leaders and events such as the Multicultural Visit Program (MVP).

Advice for Whitworth applicants:
Choosing a college is a lot like dating- make sure to ask a lot of questions, evaluate your compatibilities, know what you want and trust your gut!

Free for all:
I grew up around the world thanks to the U.S. Navy. Spokane is the first city I’ve lived in that is not next to a large body of water. I love sunshine, Starbucks, Disneyland, macarons and my pitbull terrier Jake. I have a huge collection of chick flicks and things that come in pink and purple. Also, I love Christmas and start getting into the spirit weeks before it becomes socially acceptable!
