Surviving finals taught me I could get through anything.

Working in the Alumni Office during the hustle and bustle of Homecoming.

Tell us about a person or persons from FSU who had an impact on your life. 

Liz Nelson '01/M'17, Shannon Gribble '98 and Cherie Krug (honorary alumnae). They were all instrumental in helping me to keep moving forward.

Anything my mom cooks!

I live in Florida!
