What are some of your interests outside of the Gannon Scholars? Exercise specifically boxing and running because I like the challenge. Anything musical such as attempting to play the guitar or singing. I love to snowboard because I find it very peaceful.

Why is women's leadership important to you? I think women are underrepresented and underrated in many fields. Many times they are not given the same opportunities as men and thus are alienated from important decisions. I think that, by training more and more women to be leaders, our society gets closer to truly having gender equality
