1) What makes you happy?
The beach (sandy or rocky), sitting in a lawn chair next to a lake, French Bulldog puppies, and sunsets!
2) What's something most people don't know about you?
I grew up in Washington but didn’t buy my first pair of rain boots until I moved to California.
3) Share your favorite memory working for ASI.
I’ve been working with ASI for two and a half years now and during spring quarter 2016 we hosted the Chainsmokers. Working at that concert with TILT and ASI employees was an absolute blast!
4) If you could create a slogan for your life, what would it be?
Control what you can control!
5) What's the best place you've traveled to and why?
Ocean City, Maryland because our family shares a beach house out there. I love being so close to a private beach where 50 members of our direct/extended family meet up and go to this big crab dinner at Harrison’s and then go to the boardwalk afterwards for the rides and to see extensively crafted sand castles!
6) Where's your favorite spot in SLO?
Prefumo Canyon on a clear day after the rainy season, so the hills are GREEN and where you can see Morro Bay in the distance.
7) What's one thing you can't leave home without?
Burt’s Bees ChapStick.
8) What's on your bucket list?
I would love to live in Santorini, Greece for a month, skydive, and get scuba certified at some point in my life!
9) What do you hope to achieve after you graduate?
I’m actually moving to Portland, Oregon after college, and I would love to run a marathon there!
10) What advice would you give to students interested in working for ASI?
Just apply! The world of ASI is a huge network of both students and full-time staff that are genuinely interested in your success at Cal Poly. I’ve met some of the best people that I would have otherwise not ever had the chance to meet, and it’s given me great work experience that is valuable to bring up in job interviews.
