Why I chose to work at Union...
I grew up a mile down the road from Union, and always felt as though I was part of Union family. As I child I visited the campus for various sporting events and field trips, and always envisioned myself here. It is through multiple Union graduates and current students that my love for Union was reunited.
Communications major; Master's in School Counseling
Favorite sports team:
Yankees, Giants…. I Love NY!
Favorite vacation destination:
Locally? Summers on Lake George and Sacandaga Lake are second to none. Long distance? The beaches of Mooloolaba, Australia (where I studied abroad!)
I typically find myself reading the "trendy" books of the time. My favorite, thus far, has been "Eat, Pray Love"… I've read it twice!
Favorite campus spot:
The Frank Bailey Athletic Field. It is the first place on Union’s campus I ever visited, and the one that most recently drew me back to the college!
Dave Matthews Band, Mumford and Sons, James Taylor, Van Morrison, Missy Higgins (an Aussie!)…any type of acoustic music. I am also a big country fan!
Favorite Schenectady restaurant:
The Van Dyck! The food is delicious, and the brewery provides a neat back drop!
