My biggest success at Iowa would have to be declaring a major. I say this is my biggest success because I found what I was interested in and went for it. It took me two years at Iowa but I was finally able to declare and be happy with my decision.

My dream job would be with Lilly Pulitzer in marketing or design staff. Corporate is in Kings Plaza, PA.

Advice that I would give to my freshman self would be to explore and try different things. Do not get caught up in the idea that you have to get out of here in 4 years – this is the one time in your life where you are surrounded by a large group of people your age going through what you are going through, enjoy it.


My interests include cooking, networking, and going to the zoo.

Fun fact: I'm obsessed with Christmas music.
