Q. Why did you choose to study Journalism?
A. Sharing stories has always been important to me. As a kid I went through hundreds of disposable cameras capturing life happen around me. Once I was old enough to be trusted with the camcorder it was glued to my hand.  I was always intrigued by video journalism but my passion really developed after I was handed a "real" video camera Junior year. That professor showed me the power of creative freedom and visual storytelling and ever since then, I've been hooked!

Q. Where do you see yourself in five years?
A.
 In 5 years I'll be in my mid 30s. (yikes!) I hope to have started a family and be figuring out how to balance a full-time career and mom life. My career is incredibly important to me so I always envisioned working while raising a family. Both my parents worked full-time and it really helped me understand the value hard-work, time and money.

Q. Besides creative and advertising, what are your hobbies?
A. Iā€™m currently training to run the 2019 London Marathon. Beyond fitness and wellbeing, I also love to backpack, garden, paint and cook. I can make some amazing chicken meatballs! You should also know I'll never turn down a good book.
