Interests and In my free time, I love to combine two of my passions: exercise and charity work. I
activities have participated in the March of Dimes walk, the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer
3-Day, and the Big House, Big Heart 5k. In addition to these interests, I love to
explore and travel. This summer I will be traveling to Quito, Ecuador to help run a
volunteer tutoring program.
