Admissions Staff Bio:

Which season is your favorite? Why?
The fall is my absolute favorite. Crisp weather, bonfires, comfy sweaters, no bugs. Something about the fall fills me with nostalgia, and makes me want to take long drives on gravel roads listening to old-time country music.  

If you could have a room full of any one thing, what would it be?
I should probably say something like money, but the first thing to come to my mind (and make me grin from ear to ear) is the idea of a room full of chihuahuas. I have one little guy named Rusty, and he is the apple of my eye. Multiply him by 100 and put me in a room and I’ll be the happiest girl on earth!  

What is your favorite sandwich?
Fresh sun-ripened tomato slices with mayo, salt and pepper on lightly toasted bread. There’s nothing better!

If money were not an object, what would you do with your life?
Travel, travel, travel! And adopt a room full of chihuahuas!  

What would you rather read: fiction or non-fiction?  Why?
I’d choose fiction, though I love to read both. I write fiction, so I particularly enjoy reading a fictional piece from a writer’s perspective, breaking down the conventions and reacting in awe at the mastery of a killer sentence or a captivating plot.
