  • Profile

    Hometown: Born in New Jersey, grew up in Florida 

    Education: The College of Wooster - B.A. in History

    Favorite thing about your job and/or working at UR?  The people, especially UR parents, and the pride and excellence that permeates the UR community. 

    Favorite place on campus?  Westhampton Lake, walking around it or sitting in the red Adirondack chairs outside Boatwright Memorial Library. Favorite food and/or Richmond restaurant (on or off campus): Fried oysters; I love the ones at The Continental and Can Can Brasserie.   

    Favorite TV show, podcast, and/or book? Parenthood is one of my favorite TV shows of all times (I too come from a family of four kids). I enjoy the Mel Robbins podcast and recommend, if you haven’t already read it, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol S. Dweck.

    Favorite thing to do during your time off? Exploring Richmond on my three-speed bike with my husband, Todd, and then stopping for food and a drink along the way.
