What made you decide to recruit for PUC?
I experienced PUC. I was a student and saw all of the opportunities it gave me. Whether it was spiritually, academically, or just life tips. I had a fantastic experience and by recruiting for PUC I get to share what I love about it.

Where is the most interesting place you’ve traveled for work?
I would say the most interesting place I have travel for work is to Miami. It’s such a beautiful place with amazing food!

What is the most rewarding thing about recruiting?
When I bump into my students that I have recruited and they tell me about how they love PUC! I love hearing all the stories and fun experiences they have!

If you were choosing a movie to be shown at New Student Orientation, what would you pick? Why?
“The Parent Trap” (1998) because part of it was filmed in the Napa Valley!

What is your favorite part about living here?
I’m so lucky to call this place home. I feel like it’s a community where you know everyone. There is always something to do; whether it’s going to the beach or San Francisco for the day or staying local and hiking or trying out one of the local restaurants.

What is your favorite spot on campus?
My favorite spot on campus is right outside the Campus Center. When it’s sunny outside it such a nice area to grab lunch and soak up some sun.

What is your favorite place to eat in the valley?
That changes monthly … but I guess this month it would be Bistro Jeanty. They have an amazing tomato soup!

What is the last book you read?
I’m currently in graduate school so it would be my last class textbook, which was a book on operations management.

What’s one thing you would like to accomplish in 2018?
I’ve started something called the two-minute rule. So any action that can be carried out in two minutes or less is completed right away. I want to accomplish a full year of doing this to help to maximize my time and help with procrastination.

What advice would you give to an incoming freshman?
Get involved and enjoy every moment! This is a place where you make lifelong friends and memories.
