Committee Chair

Hey everyone! I am a senior nursing major from Hershey, PA. This is my second year serving as the Homecoming Chair. Last year, I loved organizing and creating new Homecoming Student Week events and I’m excited to introduce everyone to even more new events! In my free time, I love going on spontaneous adventures with friends, watching Grey’s Anatomy (multiple times), and eating ice cream no matter the weather outside. I hope to pursue a career as a Labor & Delivery or Pediatric Registered Nurse after graduation.  I’m super excited to welcome back alumni and provide fun events for students again this year!
