BLI Graduation Year: 2018
Tell us briefly about yourself and please update your classmates on your personal/professional experiences since graduating from BLI:
I have recently joined the Ad Elements team as the Digital Director and I just love working in the digital media space. I also enjoy serving the community on several local non-profit committee and boards.
My current favorite book is “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens. It was so good – I read it in 3 days. I just couldn’t put it down. My favorite “rewatchable” movies are: White Christmas, Sabrina, Guys and Dollgs, My Best Friend’s Wedding, The Wedding Planner, The Goonies, The Princess Bride, Hope Floats, and The Devil Wears Prada, A Christmas Story, Elf, Sweet Home Alabama, The Notebook, Meet Me in St Lou. **I could also rewatch The New Girl, Friends, and the Great British Bake Off on Netflix every day!

*Lourdes Auxiliary Board Member, Lourdes Auxiliary Ball Decorating Committee Member, Donnelly Elementary PTA-Corresponding Secretary; Mason P.

I love to binge watch all things streaming, I have a pretty impressive Sephora and Ulta problem, I love anything to do with musicals and I am a pretty experienced dance and soccer mom. I also am obsessed with my 2 Australian Shepherds.
