Hometown: Shelbyville, Tenn.
"When I got to Davidson, I wasn't sure what I wanted to major in-I had a little experience with theatre, and Acting I sealed the deal on my theatre major. I feel like there's a balance in all Davidson classes between academic and personal growth. I like how acting classes focus a lot on your personal growth. As I completed my theatre courses, I felt not only well-rounded within the realm of theatre, but also prepared for life after Davidson."
Spent a semester abroad on the Davidson Classics Trip. "Give me a chance to talk about Greek vases and you're probably going to regret it!" She also likes to give tours of Nashville's exact replica of the Parthenon when she visits her home in Shelbyville.
In addition to the classics trip, she traveled several times thanks to the help of the Dean Rusk International Studies Program. "I've worked for a film production company in Belgium, which gave me new perspective on career goals, while my trip to Nicaragua with the Chaplain's Office opened my eyes to many needs in the world and the ways people can transform a community. Travel was a vital part of my Davidson experience."
Council and Counselor
Worked for Residence Life as a building manager and served as a representative on the Honor Council. "Both roles seem to be such vital elements of campus life-I couldn't help but want to be involved in these powerful parts of what Davidson stands for."
Walking with President Tom Ross
"My roommate and I decided during orientation of Tom Ross's first year that we'd love to get to know his dog, Chelsea. We e-mailed Tom to see if we could walk her." The invited them to accompany him, his wife, Susan, and 'Miss Chelsea' on their Thursday morning walks. "We would power walk around the town of Davidson, comparing how many papers we had to how many speeches Tom had left to write. It's probably the only thing that could have gotten me out of bed at 5:45 a.m.!"
