Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: I love the passion for learning on the UD campus. Students and professors here have
a natural curiosity. The Core curriculum builds a foundation for all students to develop
as readers, writers, and critical thinkers before diving into classes of their major.
I love the community and lifelong friendships that develop here. I enjoy the diversity
of the student body in that over half of the students come from outside of Texas-
50 states and 15 other countries. I believe that the study abroad experience in Rome
is a well-established and meaningful educational experience. It allows for the classroom
to come alive to students of all majors.
Favorite Spot on Campus: Cap Bar and the Art Village
Where Do You Hang Out in Dallas? The Dallas Arboretum; I love the trees and the beauty. I like to shop at North Park
Mall and sip coffee at any local coffeehouse. I also enjoy Saturdays at White Rock
Lake with my husband, Nicholis, and my dog, Bailey.
Favorite Book: Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Favorite Place to Eat in DFW: Gloria’s. Their Salvadorian, Mexican and Tex Mex food is the best.
Favorite UD Event: Groundhog
Favorite/Coolest Place I have Visited: Costa Rica. I especially loved getting to tour a coffee plantation and taking a rainforest
Advice to Prospective Students:
Campus visits are so helpful. It is important to be able to picture yourself at whichever
school you choose. Talk to current students and professors. Visit a class. Make sure
that your school can offer you opportunities to develop not only academically, but
also as a whole person. Take time to make your decision: whichever school you pick
will be home for the next four years. You will learn a ton, make countless memories,
and build lifelong friendships.
