    Favorite thing about your job and/or working at UR? My favorite thing about working at UR is supporting a place that has had a direct impact on my life despite not being an alumna. Knowing that my grandfather (B'53), mother (W'83/L'93), and husband (L'18) all spent formative years here makes me feel deeply connected to the University. Growing up going to basketball games with my grandparents in the '90s, through attending club ice hockey games to watch my husband play during law school more recently, instilled a lifelong love for the Spiders that I'm proud to share within our family. I'm fortunate to have these amazing alumni be a part of my world and enjoy having their experiences create a base for learning similar and differing stories from our other incredible alums.

    Favorite place on campus? The Robins Center for Spider basketball games!

    Favorite food and/or Richmond restaurant (on or off campus): Edo's Squid - especially when they have crab spaghetti on special!
    Favorite TV show, podcast, and/or book? TV shows: The Office, Veep, and Dateline; podcast: Crime Junkie; book: "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle"

    Favorite thing to do during your time off? Anyone who knows me knows my favorite things to do is to be with my family. I love it most when I can be with my parents, husband, and son. Together with those people, with friends, or on my own, I love trying new restaurants and revisiting old favorites, watching hockey and basketball, needlepointing, listening to true crime podcasts, antiquing for blue and white chinoiserie, and musing over organization/design accounts on Instagram.
