What does Sacred Heart mean to you?
I can't imagine who I would be without Sacred Heart. My dearest friends were all in my kindergarten class there, and it's incredible to not only see the extraordinary women we all turned out to be but to also have friendships that last a lifetime.
How did your Sacred Heart education help get you where you are professionally?
Creative thinking ran through all of my classes at Sacred Heart. Approaching assignments with an open mind and a strong sense of curiosity was highly encouraged and affects how I now work to shape a magazine and develop story ideas.
Outside of academics, what about the Sacred Heart experience uniquely influenced who you are today?
Athletics were a huge part of my development at Sacred Heart. Being on the volleyball and basketball teams instilled strong work ethics as well as the value of working together as a team—supporting others by understanding their strengths and weaknesses as well as your own.
What is your favorite Sacred Heart memory?
Congé was one of my favorite traditions. I loved sneaking around all the nooks and corners of the old building to find teachers during a game of cache-cache.
