"Whatever you do, give it 100 percent." My dad told me this when I was a child, and it has stuck with me. I strive to bring 100 percent to everything I do each day!

FAVORITE SPOT ON CAMPUS:

The Nott Memorial. Sometimes when walking across campus I take a few minutes to stop and just stare at the building. The architecture and stained glass amaze me.

GO-TO BREAKFAST:

During the week, I keep things very simple and will have a smoothie or overnight oats. On weekends, I love to make brunch at home with Ian. Some of our favorite things are omelets with lots of veggies, French toast, and avocado toast and hard-boiled eggs.
