What brought you to Regis University?
I came to Regis University mainly for my major (Health and Exercise Science) and because I felt like a smaller school would be a good fit for me and all those things along with the tight community I had heard about made Regis very attractive for me when I applied. Besides that, Denver is such a lovely city and I felt that it would be a good change of scenery from my native Southern California. =
What is your favorite Jesuit Value? Why?
My favorite Jesuit Value is Cura Personalis because of its focus and dedication to the whole person. It’s not about your personal success or simply one aspect of yourself, it’s about your growth as a complete person, your experiences that you both enjoy and learn from, and nurturing true happiness for yourself, and that’s why this value in particular has stuck with me.
What has been your fondest memory of Regis?
I can’t really pinpoint any one moment in particular, but I can say that some of my best moments I’ve had at this school have been when I am surrounded by the family I’ve cultivated here, because no matter wherever and whenever those moments happen, they are filled with so much love and laughter. Those are my fondest memories as they remind me that I connect with so many wonderful people here and they’ve become the moments that I live for.
What has been your fondest memory on the Regis University Ramblers?
Cast bonding. We’re all like a family in the Ramblers and our cast bonding nights are how I got to know some of closest friends.
What are you most looking forward to about this year’s show, Urinetown?
I am looking forward to performing with such a talented group of people. We put so much love into this show and for me it’ll be exciting to be able to perform this amazing show with the whole Ramblers family at the end of March.
Is there anything else you would like the Regis community to know?
I hope you all come see Urinetown! Show dates are on March 30-April 2. Also, I am proud to announce that for the 2017-2018 school year I will be club president of Regis University’s Gender and Sexuality Alliance.
