    Favorite thing about your job and/or working at UR? Richmond is my home. Growing up, we moved every 1-3 years. When I came here as a student, campus was the first place I really felt like I could put down roots. Coming back to work felt like the most natural step in my life. I love it here, and I feel lucky to work with an incredible team and for a place about which I feel so passionately and have such a strong connection.

    Favorite place on campus? I really like the walkway between the Law School and Jepson Hall. While the Sigma Phi Epsilon Founders Walk is probably the most memorable segment to most, the older part that's lined by crepe myrtles is where I remember walking when I was on my first tour of campus. I think it was around that spot that I first fell in love with campus. Walking through there always feels particularly special, and it's been fun seeing how the landscape has grown, marking the 20 years since I first came here.

    Favorite food and/or Richmond restaurant (on or off campus): Off campus: Yaya's Cookbook; on-campus: MTO stations at D-Hall. I'm hoping the poke bowl station is back soon!

    Favorite TV show, podcast, and/or book? When I'm not watching hours of Netflix kids shows on repeat (#MomLife), I prefer anything along the lines of Walking Dead, Supernatural, or Vampire Diaries. I'm not afraid to admit I also relish watching Finding Bigfoot and Ghost Hunters.

    Favorite thing to do during your time off? While my habits would suggest I love yardwork and folding laundry, truthfully I most enjoy geocaching, driving through the woods on back roads, playing at the beach, and going to amusement parks (I really enjoy Busch Gardens, but I dream of going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando).
