Where are you from?

I grew up in Wyoming and Northern Arizona, I claim both since I moved to Arizona in middle school. Both were small towns, so moving to San Diego for college was amazing! 

What was your favorite involvement in college and why?

I was a Resident Assistant (RA) in Young Hall my junior and senior years.  To this day my fellow RA’s are my dearest friends. To top it all off one of the students on my floor set my husband and I up on a blind date and the rest is history.  So thanks Linsey, you were always my favorite!

What's one piece of advice you'd give to someone looking for their perfect college?

I will always encourage students to visit, visit, visit.  If a college is on your radar make an effort to get on campus, it will really help you get a clearer vision if that institution is a “fit" for you. Even a virtual visit is a win!

Where's the best place in OC to get coffee?

In South OC, Ellie’s Table in San Juan Capistrano and Coffee Importers in Dana Point are my favorites. Anywhere else in Orange County, I’ll look for a Portola Coffee Roasters.
