Why did you choose University of Mary Washington?

I chose Mary Washington because of the swim team, the location, the beautiful campus, the size of school, and the opportunities within the College of Business.

Favorite Spot on Campus?


What are your plans post Mary Wash?

I have accepted an accounting position at PBMares in Fairfax. I also plan to get my CPA.

What advice would you give incoming Eagles?

Enjoy your time at Mary Wash because it goes by so fast. Get to know your professors and faculty because they can be great resources when trying to get jobs and internships.

What does Women's History Month mean to you?

Women's History Month means being able to represent all the women who came before me who were not given the same opportunities as me in the classroom and in athletics. It also means to continue the UMW Women's swim team legacy.
