About the Counselor

What makes SXU different from other universities?

What sets Saint Xavier University apart from many universities is its strong sense of community. Classes are smaller and more intimate, so students and professors can form strong, professional relationships that follow the students even after they graduate.

What's a favorite memory of your college years at Saint Xavier?

During my undergraduate years, some of my most favorite memories are from when I studied abroad in England in the summer following my junior year, and I studied at the University of Oxford! It was such an enriching experience, both academically and leisurely. Much of what I learned during my time there elevated my motivation and inspiration for my senior project. I had so much fun, and I wish I could do something like that again!

What do you do for fun?

I like to write short stories in my free time, though nothing is published yet! I also love to read, go out with my family, work on creative videos on my laptop, and I'm also gradually getting into cross-country.

Favorite television show?

"Supernatural"! I also love watching shows like "The Walking Dead," "Grey's Anatomy," "Sherlock" and "Criminal Minds."

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Back to Oxford, England if I could! I would love to visit more of Europe in general and see Ireland, Spain, Scotland, etc.
