PC Background: During my time at PC I was a Psychology and Christian Education double major. I was a member of Alpha Delta Pi and served on the executive board of the sorority. I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a Big Sister at Thornwell, as part of the Big Brother, Big Sister program. Additionally, I was a part of Student Volunteer Services. While at PC, I also was given the opportunity to go on two different ‘Maymester’ trips – one to Kenya, Africa and one to Istanbul, Turkey.

What is your favorite PC memory? I think one of my top memories would be the 80’s band party outside of Richardson Hall the beginning of my senior year. Everyone was back at PC after a long summer, and we were all so excited to be home.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be the ‘check-out’ lady at Harris Teeter (the local grocery store). This dream has still not come true.

If there was a book about your life, what would the title be? This One Time…

Most used emoji? 😬

What’s your best advice for students during their college search? Take your time. It’s ok if you aren’t sure of a top choice right away. It will all fall into place. Try to focus equally on both the academic life a campus will offer as well as the social aspect. Both are very important, and both make for a well-rounded college experience. Plus, professors who are very willing to offer advice/help are WONDERFUL.
