What do you like most about CA?

My favorite thing about CA is the sense of community. Even though each student — and faculty member — has different interests and ideas, we all come together to learn and support each other, which is something really special about this school. I love how common trust creates a mutual respect between all members of the community, allowing everyone to be themselves while also appreciating others for their differences. I also like how CA gives its students opportunities to pursue their passions or try something completely new.

What keeps you busy on campus?

At CA, I run cross-country and I’m on the ski team. This past spring I was manager of the track team, and this fall I am serving as a peer mentor for freshman. I play guitar and love the painting classes here! In terms of academics, I enjoy expanding my knowledge about the world around me through science labs, and the literary discussions I take part in during English classes always help me to see things in new ways.

What’s something that most people don’t know about you?

Two things most people don’t know about me are that I was on a competitive rock climbing team and that I teach adaptive skiing and soccer.
