Reading, being an outdoor nut - gardening, running, playing tennis, golf, and sand volleyball; and of course, sipping my morning chai!

Education: BA in Mass Communications, minor in English literature from UW-Eau Claire - Go Blugolds! MA from Gonzaga University in Organizational Leadership - Go Zags!

Favorite campus event: Campus Ambassador training

Best thing about UW-Eau Claire: The natural beauty of campus (the view from the bridge is a great way to start and end each day!) and the great community of Eau Claire (friendly people, great restaurants, coffee houses and shops).

Favorite spot in Eau Claire: Besides some great local restaurants, I would say the trails that run through campus along the river!

Favorite restaurant in Eau Claire: Ciccione's, El Patio, The Goat, Nucleus - you define the mood you're in and you'll find a place to match it.

What's on your Ipod? Mumford and Sons, Kings of Leon, Matchbox Twenty, and of course, our own alum's band – Bon Iver
