Why Plymouth?
Plymouth State is a whole new experience and when I was a student here, I started to realize what the campus is all about. It truly is about the people on this campus – whether it be friends, students, faculty or staff. Everyone on campus is always willing to lend a hand to help out with anything, or to simply grab a cup of coffee with you. Another reason I love working for Plymouth is the view of the campus. How often can you truly walk across a campus and have a picturesque view of the mountains in the background? It truly is breathtaking.

Favorite Movie?
Don’t really have one. I am a big fan of action movies, though.

Favorite Plymouth Eatery?
Six Burner Bistro. The food is always amazing every time I go there! Its quick service and unique food options always keep me coming back for more.

Favorite Spot on Campus?
The HUB (Hartman Union Building). It’s always hustling and bustling inside the student union building. It also has two of my favorite places inside the building – the gym and a coffee shop. Yum!

Favorite Pro Sports Team?
Boston Bruins

Mac or PC? Mayo or Miracle Whip? Chocolate or Vanilla?
I like both types of computers. I am definitely a mayo person; Miracle Whip grosses me out! My favorite is dark chocolate; something about the bitterness adds that extra touch that is needed to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Favorite Quote?
“Carpe Diem!”
