What’s your favorite time of day? When are you most productive?
My favorite time of day is between 10:00am and noon because I tend to be more productive then.
Describe your greatest accomplishment.
My greatest accomplishment was helping to restart the Irish language program at my university. It was a program that was going be eliminated due to lack of participation, but I petitioned to have it included in a more rigorous curriculum in the language department and it is now one of the top language programs there. I am proud to see that my enthusiasm for my heritage can now be learned and appreciated by all students there.
Name one of your “weird” hobbies or habits.
A “weird” habit of mine is I still love and support the New York Rangers no matter how disappointing of a season they have. I bleed blue and always will.
How many cities have you lived in?
I’ve lived in 5 cities: Smithtown, NY; Charlottesville, VA; Charlotte, NC; Washington, DC; and Jacksonville, FL.
Where are you happiest?
I am happiest when I am around a body of water, whether that be the ocean, a lake, or even a pool. I find the water healing.
What’s the best gift/kindest gesture you’ve ever received?
During my senior year at CUA, I was the co-captain of the choreography team in the Irish Dance team. To thank me for all my hard work, my team had a stained-glass shamrock with a cardinal on it made for me. I smile every time I see it hanging in my window.
