Favorite CABMA memory?
There are many but one that sticks out is becoming involved in the MentorMe program. This allowed me the opportunity to give back to this amazing community as well as establish new connections and friendships. I'm excited to witness the continued growth and impact this program will have on the membership.
Last book you read (title & author)?
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
This is the hardest question for me to answer! Too many to choose so I'll settle on the best movie I recently saw which was The Greatest Showman. I love a good musical!
Instagram or Twitter?
Most memorable sporting event attended?
2008 Wimbledon Men's Singles final- Nadal vs. Federer. I was working the tournament as a Production Assistant for NBC Sports. As a Federer fan, it was tough to see him lose but it was an amazing opportunity to witness what has now been described as the greatest match in the history of tennis.
"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
What is one of the greatest aspects of being involved in athletics?
The renewed excitement of the department at the start of each school year. It feels like everyone starts anew and with anticipation for what the new year has in store. Not many people can say that about their job and I definitely feed off that energy.
Best piece of professional advice you've received?
Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an adventure.
