Hometown: Lawrenceville, GA

Major: Nursing

RA of Stephen Hall

What are three fun facts about yourself?

  • I’m from Atlanta, Georgia
  • I want to be a nurse in the near future
  • I am fluent in French

What’s been your favorite part of your Concordia experience so far?

My favorite experience was having the opportunity to travel with my basketball teammates to Hawaii for a basketball tournament. It was my first time ever visiting Hawaii and I truly loved every second of it. It was a once in a lifetime experience. 

What’s one thing that Concordia students should have in their hall?

I would always advise students to bring a TV. Cable is free 🙂

What’s something that Concordia students should NOT have in their hall?

As much as I love pets, animals other than a fish are not allowed on campus. 

What is your first impression of being an RA so far?

This is more than just a job. This resident life crew is a family. I’m so happy to be a part of the team as we all have the same focus to give residents the best campus life experience.
