    Favorite thing about your job and/or working at UR? I love sharing meaningful stories that demonstrate the impact of philanthropy to our donors and alumni so they better understand how important they are to our Spider community. 

    Favorite place on campus? The bridge on Westhampton Lake! My husband and I like to take our holiday card photos there - it's stunningly beautiful in the fall. I also love taking a break in the Well-Being Center. 

    Favorite food and/or Richmond restaurant (on or off campus): I love Italian and Greek food - I could always go for a meal at Edo's Squid, Stella's, Grapevine, or Joe's Inn. 

    Favorite TV show, podcast, and/or book? TV show - The Crown; podcast - Weird Darkness (I love supernatural horror); and book - either "In Cold Blood" by Truman Capote or "Memoirs of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden 

    Favorite thing to do during your time off? Snuggle with my two cats, Scarlett and Leo; watch movies; travel to new places with my husband, Tyler
