What do you do for a campus job or work study?
I work for Gibson Crew. I am an usher and work the sound and light boards for events in the theaters.


What is your favorite thing about Sunday?
I love relaxing on Sundays after a busy weekend. I am always involved in something, so Fridays and Saturdays get a little hectic. Sundays are a great day to settle in with some tea and Netflix or go for a walk downtown.


What are you most looking forward to this year?

I am most looking forward to my thesis production of Next to Normal. It has been one of my biggest dreams to direct this show, and I am so excited it is happening this Spring!


What is your favorite thing about WAC?
My favorite thing about WAC is probably the overall beauty of the campus. I love being able to go out on the green and take everything in. I also love the amount of WAC pride this school has. It makes everything more fun.


Why did you choose your major?

I’ve known that I was going to pursue a career in musical theatre since I was nine years old, so double majoring in Music and Drama seemed like an obvious choice for me. My love for teaching is relatively new in comparison, but I think that I would like to teach in a studio one day, so this is a great start to that part of my career as well.
