“UNC is a great university with a southern touch. The climate, food, sporting life, business opportunities, and warmness of the people make for a relaxing and empowering environment. As a Philly and most recently, Maryland transplant, I boldly claim North Carolina my home. Many are brought here for various reasons. I hold true to the quote, ‘Bloom where you are planted.’”

"I have loved working at UNC – Chapel Hill, because I am lucky enough to combine all the elements I enjoy professionally: quantitative analysis, program management and development, working directly with students as both a club advisor and individual coach, having a part in a larger strategic plan – all while working with a great team of people and within an environment that recognizes the difficulty of balancing work and family. I am still learning everyday too!!"
