Best college advice for prospective students:

Attend as many Open Houses as you can to determine the schools you want to apply to. Once you are accepted, schedule an individualized visit. You will get a different feeling walking around campus knowing you’ve been accepted and attending that school is a real possibility.

Favorite thing to do in Wilkes-Barre: Take my dog, Bootsie, to the Hollenback dog park or for a walk at Kirby Park. 

Finish the sentence: On Sunday mornings you can find me.. Taking a spin class at the YMCA! 

Favorite vacation spot: The Poconos – my entire family rents a lake house there every summer.

Favorite Season: There’s nothing more beautiful than Fall in NePA..      

Random fun fact about me: There is a 17 year age gap between me and my youngest sibling.
