Background

Did You Know?

If I were a super-hero, my powers would be…

To fly. I love to travel, so being able to fly would allow me see the world from a new perspective. I would also be able to see my family more often!

Something many people don’t know about me…

I was able to play basketball against my older sister for 2 consecutive years in college while she was playing at Cornell, and I was playing at Colgate.
