What is your favorite college memory?

In college, I got the once in a lifetime opportunity to play in a Final Four match for Hendrix's volleyball team in the NCAA Tournament. Some of my best memories were spent on the volleyball court and on the track. I got to travel across the country with groups of people who eventually became family. The beauty of Hendrix is these sorts of families form throughout the campus. There's a home for everyone at Hendrix. Mine just happened to be on the track, the volleyball court, and in the school's non-profit organization

What advice would you give to your incoming students?

Take chances on things that may seem out of the ordinary for you. Hendrix is not an ordinary school, and odds are you didn't get into Hendrix because you're an ordinary person. Enjoy the quirks and traditions Hendrix has to offer, and don't be afraid to step a little outside of your comfort zone.

What are you passionate about?

Food and all things coffee related, for sure. I have a soft spot for animals and the ocean. Environmental wellness and personal nutrition are high on my list too. I'll also try anything at least once, and I'm definitely a sucker for a good adventure.


Who are your four fantasy dinner guests?

Abraham Lincoln, Sherlock Holmes, John Muir, and Elon Musk.
