What did you do after graduation?
I attended Hampton University, where I studied Broadcast Journalism and minored in English Arts. Before my senior year of college, I worked for Carnival Cruise Lines as a production singer. After I received my degree, I relocated to Washington, D.C. to work in nonprofit communications, but my "dream" was to work in radio. I came back to the area and now work for Z104. I still work in nonprofit communications with an organization called Safer Chemicals Healthy Families as a campaign associate. In my capacity at Z104, I am weekend on-air talent and participate in work promotions. If it's a Thursday night, I'm probably at Baxter's on Granby Street.
What clubs / activities were you in during high school?
During my time at Catholic, I managed the Girls' Varsity Basketball team and worked with Model UN. I also cheered for one semester. Outside of school, I performed with The Hurrah Players.
What is your favorite memory of Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School?
My favorite memory is the retreats. Having the chance to connect on that level with my classmates was great. I also remember the student cheering section for our sports teams. Since I did not go to a big sports college, I really look back at that as the perfect manifestation of school spirit.
What does being a Crusader mean to you?
If I did not attend Catholic, I would not have been as ready for college. I came to class more prepared academically than many of my peers and an essay test did not leave me shaking in my boots. I was given the discipline necessary to not only perform well in class, but to know how to balance both an academic and social life. As cheesy as it may sound, I realized that I really am Catholic! Although college opens your eyes to many different faiths, it was my Catholic faith that really did get me through my tough “college crossroads moments.”
