Major/Minor: English with a minor in Gender Studies

So many of my favorite memories revolve around living in Chestertown and being a part of the community.

How has your liberal arts education influenced you? How do you apply your LAE in your current career?

My LAE taught me to be a 360 degree thinker. I am able to approach my work in education with an open mind and a problem solving foresight. 

Who was your favorite faculty/staff member? Story?

I have many favorite faculty members whose love of learning was passed off so clearly on me and my peers. Dr. Gillian, Dr. Moncrief, Dr. Shoge to name a few. I will never forget the Female Poets class I had with Dr. Shoge.

What is your favorite Washington College memory?

Too many to list. So many of my favorite memories revolve around living in Chestertown and being a part of the community. Also, my semester abroad in Cork, Ireland. 

Did your Senior Capstone Experience (or thesis project) have a major influence on your future career or your personal growth? If so, please explain what your SCE entailed and how it influenced who or where you are today.

Having written countless essays during my four years at WAC I decided to take my senior comps in English. I worked so diligently to learn how to write over my time there and wanted to be able to show off my skills. Please to have received honors distinction on my comps.
