Year: Class of 2013
Relationship Status: In a relationship with my high school sweetheart!
Hometown and What You Love About It: Delta, Pa- I love that it’s small, historic and rural. Everyone knows everyone! Around this time last year I stopped at the bank in town and the teller congratulated me on making the Dean’s List at Chatham! She’d read it in the Delta Star, our teeny tiny newspaper.
Your Favorite Thing About Growing Up on a Farm: Living in the country, you are just surrounded by beauty everywhere. In the summer I spend a lot of time on the tractor and I don’t even take music to listen to or anything. I just look around at the beautiful landscape and get lost in my thoughts. As a kid, I loved being in 4-H and getting to take my dairy cows to Fairs and County Shows.
Why You Chose Chatham: I chose Chatham for the Interior Architecture program and the atmosphere here. The secluded woodland atmosphere of the campus is perfect for a country girl trying to find her footing in the big city! There’s enough grass that I feel at home here, but the city is so close at the same time.
Your Favorite Thing About Being a Chatham Woman: I think there’s just something unique about Chatham, aside from the fact that it’s an all-women’s college. Overall, I believe the integrity and character of the young women you find here is unmatched. As a student at Chatham I feel that I am surrounded by inspiring people, which is something you don’t find everywhere.
Major and Why You Chose It: Interior Architecture- it’s the perfect mix of creativity and challenge for me. It’s a difficult major, since it’s an Accelerated 3-year program, but I think the struggle has only reinforced how much I love architecture and design.
Favorite TV Show: Modern Family, Up All Night, Once Upon a Time
Favorite Movie: Walk the Line
Favorite Musician/Band: I like all types of music, but being home for the summer makes me want to listen to country!
Favorite Book: Emma by Jane Austen
Favorite Food: Delta is right on the PA/MD border so I love Maryland-style Crabs and Shrimp!
Childhood Dream Job: Ar-Far-Ve-Act = Artist/Farmer/Veterinarian/Actress
Current Dream Job: Working at a small Interior Design firm and/or having my own line of Textiles and Home Décor to sell in department stores. After I retire from that, I am going to raise sheep and host weddings at my beautiful plantation-style home.
