Why did you choose WLC?

I knew that I wanted to teach, and WLC offered opportunities to experience both public school and parochial school settings... and the theatre program!

Tell us about your favorite WLC experience.

There are countless experiences that are worth retelling, but the most important thing about my time at WLC is the friendships I made there. These wonderful individuals are my people, and we still talk daily! The experiences continue!

Who is your favorite WLC professor or staff member?

I learned so much from Dr. David Brightsman; he challenged me and helped me become a great teacher. In the same vein, Professor Jan Nelson will forever be a light in my WLC Theatre experience; she knew how to push and made everything fun.

What have you accomplished on your bucket list since graduation?

I traveled to Hawaii and swam with a dolphin!


What is next on your bucket list to complete?

I want to go to Australia.

"WLC offers a great education and helped me build a solid foundation for the future. I wouldn't be where I am without WLC, and I want to help do that for current and future Warriors."
