Where are you from?

Havertown, Pennsylvania

What do you enjoy most about working at Florida Southern?

I love my territory, as I am from Pennsylvania originally and love the Northeast. I also lived in upstate New York for three years, and my mom is from Long Island, New York—so I am very familiar with New York!

Do you have a favorite spot on campus?

I have three: Badcock Garden, Lynn’s Garden, and the waterfront dock. I love them all!

What's the best tradition or campus event at Florida Southern?

Scholars Weekend! It’s an exciting time for all prospective students, and it usually helps them decide to attend FSC.

Describe your idea of a perfect Saturday in Lakeland.

My perfect Saturday? Good pool time and exploring what else the town has to offer. Even though I’ve lived in Lakeland for three years, I find new things here every day—concerts, plays, fun places to go, and of course new restaurants to try! I also enjoy shopping in Lakeside Village as often as I can.

Any favorite restaurants or hangouts in Lakeland?

There are so many, but my top two would have to be The Red Door close to downtown and GrillSmith in Lakeside Village.
