I was born and raised in Westwood, MA a small suburb of Boston and spent my summers on Cape Cod in Mashpee, MA. I am the oldest of two children and my younger sister, Mariel is currently a sophomore at Lehigh. I am a mixologist who enjoys preparing cocktails and cooking. I also enjoy physical fitness and working out. I am an avid skier and a certified open water scuba diver. I have dived multiple sites across the Caribbean – Grand Caymen, Aruba, Cancun, Turks and Caicos and Puerto Rico including reef, wreck, cavern and shark diving.
I have been an Eckardt Scholar since day one of my Lehigh experience. I have enjoyed our group dinners and meetings. I am grateful to be an Eckardt scholar and to have experienced the diverse background and the intellectually stimulating dialogues within and among the group.
