A Little Bit About Me
In my free time, you will likely find me out walking or exploring the Columbus area. I enjoy trying out restaurants and cooking new recipes. I love spicy foods and have an ever-growing hot sauce collection. If you see me with AirPods in, there is a good chance I am listening to a podcast. A few of my favorites include: Petty Crimes, Sounds Like A Cult, and No Stupid Questions. Feel free to share any of your podcast recommendations with me! I spent two years teaching high school STEM before making the switch to working in college admissions.
