Job description
Applying for college can be a very stressful process, and applying for college overseas can be doubly so. My work is to help make it easier and more pleasant.

Favorite thing about Drury
The people! Everyone is quite welcoming and helpful.

Favorite Springfield Restaurant
Arris’ Pizza – someone once told me it was Brad Pitt’s favorite pizza.

Favorite event both on campus and in Springfield
The International Food Festival on campus is definitely the number one event I look forward to attending every year! In Springfield, I like the First Friday Art Walk.

Hobby (what you like to do)
I enjoy playing the guitar to my cats. They usually yell at me for doing that to them. Other than that I love reading and drawing.

Fun fact
I once got stung by a jellyfish swimming in the sea at night. It was terribly painful and left spots on my skin for years!

Most interesting item in your office
The shoulder puppet I adopted at a Renaissance Fair in Florida.
