Degree: B.A., The College of Wooster
Originally from: Peaks Island, ME
Territories: Eastern and Central Massachusetts
Why I love working at Hampshire: I am constantly amazed by what the Hampshire community is doing; from going test-blind to constructing a living building on our campus, we are constantly testing boundaries and thinking outside of the box.
Piece of advice in the college admissions process: Brag about yourself and don't hold back! This is the only time in your life when it's really socially acceptable to do so—take advantage of it!
Best-kept secret at Hampshire: We have a llama named Austin who guards our campus farm!
A random fact about me: I've had a passport since the age of 2 and have been traveling ever since. I've travelled to roughly 25 different countries, most recently Croatia and Hungary (where I unfortunately lost my passport...).
Favorite books: The Frangipani Hotel and Stone Mattress which both happen to be collections of short stories. Please recommend more to me!
Shows I'm binge-watching: 30 Rock (again), House of Cards, and Sense 8. Curse you, Netflix, for being so addictive!
Favorite spot in the Pioneer Valley: I love being in downtown Northampton because of its wonderful array of restaurants, used book stores, and quirky music venues!
A skill I'm trying to learn: I'd love to learn how to use the sewing machine that's been collecting dust in my room for years!
My favorite way to procrastinate: I love snuggling with my guinea pig, Sampson, and having random jam sessions with my housemates.
