Hi everyone! I'm a senior from Warrenville, Illinois studying sociology with a certificate in French. I am very excited to be a Rocky PAA and I look forward to meeting you soon! On campus I'm involved in Mock Trial, Outdoor Action, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mercer County, the University Student Life Committee and the Program in Law & Public Affairs. I also work at the Information Desk at Firestone Library. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like to talk!

Major: Sociology

Certificates: French

Study Abroad experience: The summer of my freshman year I studied abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France through a Princeton intensive language-immersion program. My sophomore summer I went back to France through IIP to work for an international law NGO called the Union Internationale des Avocats and my junior spring I studied abroad at the Sorbonne University in Paris for a semester. Studying abroad is an incredible experience that I can't recommend enough, especially if you're working on mastering a foreign language!
