What was your most meaningful service experience or extracurricular activity in college and why?

The most meaningful service experience I had while in college was being a Coach for WNC Girls on the Run. I joined Girls on the Run to follow my passion – inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident and teaching them how to realize and value their personal strengths. I am honored to be part of a network of strong wonderful girls and women committed to making this world a better place.

What do you like to do for fun?

For fun, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends. Whether we are baking and watching movies, going thrift shopping or grabbing a quick lunch, as long as I am amongst great company with good conversation, I am happy. I also love to hike new trails and explore new places.
