7) What do you do for fun? I love gardening, going to live music and reading a good book at the beach in my free time!

8) What makes you glad you work at USL? Working at USL has been such an incredible experience.  I love getting to work with students in the intermediate school through high school.  There's so many exciting parts of each grade, so I feel lucky to work with all of them!  I have definitely loved getting to incorporate community service in my work day and have seen a huge difference in my mood from it!
