Born and raised in York, Pennsylvania where I felt a little too comfortable, I moved to Philadelphia seeking a career that made a difference in the lives of others. While it took some time, I knew that Saint Joseph's University was the best community for me to join and grow. Each day I am faced with new challenges and opportunities that allow me to impact my community and enhance my life. When I am not working, I enjoy volunteering with LiveUp! and PALS Programs. Both organizations create overnight and day-long experiences for individuals with Down syndrome. I also love going to concerts, rooting on the Philadelphia sports teams, and trying new cuisines with my friends and family.
