Hometown: Fredericksburg, VA

Alma mater: University of Virginia (B.A.), University of Virginia (M.Ed.)

What I love about McIntire: The community. Everyone—faculty, staff, and students—really value each other, not only as scholars and team members, but also as people, their growth, and their well-being, professionally and personally.

One piece of application advice: Your application should represent your best self. Each item in your application plays a role in the admission decision, so make sure it reflects you, the best you have to offer, your story,  and why you are a good fit for the program.

A fun fact about me: In my spare time, I love to dance, ballroom specifically, but also salsa and bachata.
