Why do you love Trinity?
I love Trinity because of the community; faculty, staff, and students always make each other feel welcome and cared for. You always feel supported by your colleagues.

What does life outside of Trinity look like for you?
When I’m not at Trinity, I enjoy watching soccer and baseball, particularly Manchester United and the Chicago Cubs. I also enjoy playing golf.

What is your favorite part of Chicago?
My favorite spot in Chicago is Wrigley Field. There’s nothing like it with the ivy, bleachers, and of course flying the W.

Were you a student at Trinity?
I graduated from Trinity in 2018. While I was a student here, I was involved in the soccer program and the ALPS (Athletic Leadership) program.
