Q: What’s your favorite TU memory?
A: The night the members of my fraternity, Sigma Pi, unanimously elected me president of our chapter. Having 60 of my closest friends place their trust and confidence in me to move our organization forward was truly a humbling experience. My time as chapter president was extremely rewarding, and taught me invaluable lessons in leadership, time management, teamwork, and relationship-building.
Q: What TU experience most influenced you?
A: Two years after earning my undergraduate degree, I returned to Towson to accept a job as the director of the fraternity and sorority life program in the Division of Student Affairs. My four years on staff helped me grow tremendously as a professional, and I was especially fortunate to have two extraordinary mentors in Dr. Teri Hall, associate vice president for student affairs, and David Satterlee, former director of student activities, whose leadership styles and philosophies have greatly informed my own.
Q: How did your TU education help you get to where you are now?
A: My TU education deepened my understanding of and appreciation for the American political process, and helped me develop a robust set of skills that prepared me for the rigors of law school and the demands of a career in public service.
