    Favorite thing about your job and/or working at UR? I appreciate the environment of a smaller, community-oriented university and getting to work with a lot of really smart people. I also enjoy learning about the experiences our students have and the amazing opportunities they’re able to pursue, often because of philanthropy. I’m always so impressed by them!
    Favorite place on campus? I like sitting on the lawn overlooking Westhampton Lake. Also, the Well-Being Center is an amazing space.
    Favorite food? My favorite food in general is any, and all, shellfish. Edo’s Squid and Tazza Kitchen are go-tos.
    Favorite TV show, podcast, and/or book? The shows I could watch on repeat are Modern Family, Superstore, VEEP, The Detour, Curb your Enthusiasm, and Parks and Recreation. I enjoy a good true crime podcast, and lately I've been reading books by Taylor Jenkins Reid. 
    Favorite thing to do during your time off? I love to travel, and I really enjoy cooking. I’ve more recently discovered that I can actually keep indoor plants alive and now have a collection at home that’s bordering on excessive.
