What is your favorite college memory?

I have way too many to pick! I loved my time living in Couch Hall as an RA, studying abroad in Germany, going to Kaffeestunde at Something's Brewing (R.I.P.), attending Fellowship at the Miller Center, doing really cool stuff with the Odyssey program, and numerous study sessions and parties with friends.  


What advice would you give to your incoming students?

Don't be afraid to leave your comfort zone: take a class that sounds interesting but has nothing to do with your major, join a new club or activity, create a ridiculously epic food concoction in the caf. Also take time to explore Arkansas - I regret not leaving campus more often! 


What are you passionate about?

Professionally, I am passionate about access to education, liberal arts, and international exposure for young people. Personally, I take interest in all things German, history, the arts, food, and my family and friends. 

Who are your four fantasy dinner guests?

Julie Andrews, Malala Yousafzai, Rory Gilmore, and Jimmy Fallon
