Hometown: Glenolden, PA

Interests: Dance, pop culture, city life (living in the City of Brotherly Love and all of its glory), education, healthy living, travel, and the occasional light-hearted novel
About Me: If I had to choose three words to describe myself, they would be passionate, personable, and positive. I really like meeting new people and working with them.

Favorite Place on Campus: If I had to pick my favorite place on campus, it would have to be the Mansion. Ever so cozy and nice, it’s very fancy, but it doesn’t brag about it. I like to pretend that I’m on Downton Abbey while I’m there, just hanging out on my English estate in the countryside.
Fun Fact: I have lived in London and Paris, but Philadelphia will always have a special place in my heart!

Interests:  Reading, running, being behind a video camera, going to concerts, exploring new places, learning new things and trying new food!

About Me:  I am a Jersey girl born and raised in Washington Township and Ocean City who loves the beach, coffee, and a good book. I enjoy helping people, freelancing video and trying to better myself through learning or reading new things. I'm a firm believer in loving what you do and that's why I was so excited to return to Cabrini to work in the admissions office, a place where I gave tours and created so many friendships during my undergraduate career. When I walked across the graduation stage in 2017, I knew that it wasn't a "goodbye," but rather a "see you later." I look forward to furthering my education in the future, continuing to make great memories here and giving back to the place that gave me so much.

Favorite Place on Campus:  I love the second floor of the library - when I was a student I would spend a lot of my time writing essays there. It's so peaceful and hidden!
