Advice for jumping into college life: Say yes as much as you can! You never know what may arise from pushing yourself out of your comfort zone – you could meet a new friend, learn a new skill or just have a funny story to tell later.  Get involved right away! Take advantage of the very start of college by trying different clubs and organizations and finding where you want to put your time and energy into

Advice on how to choose a college:  Picture yourself on campus when you go on college tours.  Could you see yourself there walking to class, hanging out with friends in common areas or studying in the library?  Ultimately, trust that you will end up exactly where you are supposed to.

Fun fact about yourself: I was an alpine ski racer growing up.  Now, when I go home for winter break, I teach ski lessons.
