I am a third year Government and History major and French minor from West Chester, PA. I have been involved in Student Council since my first year, first as a member of the Entrepreneurship and Innovations Committee and now as a Co-Chair of Athletic Affairs. Our committee has a lot of potential this year, and I’m excited to see where our initiatives take us. In addition to Student Council, I am a member of IRO, the Chief of Staff for VICS XXI, the collegiate Model UN conference hosted at UVA; a Program Director for Madison House’s ESOL Program, and a member of Club Cross Country. If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions for our committee, feel free to contact me!
