Hometown: Middlefield, Connecticut
College: Scripps College
As an Overland student, I participated in the European Challenge and the American Challenge.
Originally from Middlefield, Connecticut, I graduated from Scripps College in 2018 with an English major and a studio art minor. Last year, I worked closely with first and second graders in an elementary school and mentored local middle school students in creative writing. I was also a barista at our campus student-run coffee shop. In my free time, I enjoy swimming in lakes with my dog, reading in hammocks and biking down (and up!) hills.
In 2015, I was a member of Overland’s Support Staff and led Berkshire Adventure and New England Adventure; in 2016, I led Cape Cod & the Islands; in 2017, I led Pacific Coast; and in 2017, I led the American Challenge. Leading for Overland is the most rewarding part of my year. I love watching groups grow together through a mutual commitment to teamwork, positivity and enthusiasm.
