What is your favorite memory of being in school?
My fondest memory of elementary school was playing the lead role of Nancy in Oliver when I was in 7th grade. In high school I was Varsity cheer captain in my junior year.

What do you value most about St. Patrick?
I value the camaraderie from all the teachers at St. Patrick.

Who or what inspires you most?
I am inspired most by people who take chances and don’t take no for an answer. Dr. Seuss’s first book,  “To Think That I Saw Iton Mulberry Street”, was rejected by 27 publishers……yet he kept trying.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I would dance ballet every day if I had the chance. I also like to run, letter, read, and spend time with whatever family member is around.

What is the best advice you have ever received?
Don’t make judgments on anyone, anywhere, anytime. We are all trying to do the best we can.
