Why did you choose Belmont?
Belmont University is precisely the right size for someone like me. I appreciate the increased degree of interaction between the professor and myself. Because of this, I feel as if I can benefit the most from every class I take.

Why did you choose to be a Tour Guide?
I am very much a people person and I love being able to shower prospective parents and students with knowledge, fun facts and an all around good time on every tour I give.

What is your favorite on-campus event?
I love intramurals because I am a very sports oriented person. I never miss an Ohio State football game and love watching March Madness – along with this I love playing basketball, flag football and soccer.

What is your favorite movie?
It’s tough because with every genre, I have a different favorite movie. If you want an overall favorite, I’d have to choose Shawshank Redemption. It’s either that or Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back. Both are classics and rightfully so.

What is your favorite song & artist/band?
The first concert I ever went to was a Justin Timberlake concert and I can confidently say that he is my favorite artist. My favorite song however is AC/DC’s Back in Black. It’s the perfect song to get you fired up for any big event.

What is your favorite Nashville experience?
I really enjoy going out with my roommate to various restaurants throughout the week and competing in trivia events. I enjoy the random blippets of knowledge and it’s great being in a big city to have so many avenues to fill that trivia addiction.

What is your dream career after graduating from Belmont?
I would absolutely love to work for one of the Big 4 sports leagues (NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB) and assist in overseas expansion.

What is your favorite class that you have taken at Belmont and why?
It was an honors class that covered various electoral systems and looked at elections of the past. I am very engaged in politics, so it was an enjoyable class.

If you could go back in time and give advice about college to 16-17 year old you, what would you say?
It’s going to go really fast, like crazy crazy fast. But what’s important is do not get your head stuck in that college mindset yet. I know it occupies your Junior and Senior year of High School, but cherish those friends and moments left in high school.
