What was your first job?
My first job was in the bakery of a 4Rivers in Tampa. I spent my shifts selling desserts, decorating cupcakes, and secretly trading cookies for mac & cheese with the front-of-house employees.
How did you get your start in Campus Recreation?
Kate Blosser reached out to me about a potential opportunity with Campus Rec as the incoming graduate assistant of marketing. I quickly came to realize that this is my dream job and, well, here I am!
What do you do for fun?
Anything outside! I recently got into trail running (I’m more of a slow and steady, enjoy the scenery kind of gal), but I also love rollerblading, biking, climbing, and camping. When I’m inside, I’m probably baking or editing photos from my most recent trip (I started pursuing photography in high school).
Who do you admire and why?
Erin Sullivan, you might know her as @erinoutdoors on Instagram. She kind of blew up when she started the “Our Great Indoors” series during quarantine. She’s a champion for outdoor education and her content constantly pushes me to stretch my creativity, whatever the situation.
What’s your favorite place to grab a meal in Tallahassee?
The Bark! Best vegan/vegetarian food in Tallahassee, hands down. Plus, they host poetry and fiction readings once a week featuring FSU faculty, students, alumni, and special guests.
What do you do?
I assist the Campus Rec Marketing team in developing and overseeing marketing initiatives for all the Campus Rec programs and facilities.
What does an average day look like?
I’m not quite sure yet, but I get the sense that there really isn’t an “average day” at the Campus Rec offices. I’m so excited to be a part of that!
What’s your favorite part of your job?
I am most looking forward to working with the Campus Rec team. I can already tell it’s a close-knit, hardworking community and I cannot wait to see what this job has in store for me.
What advice would you give yourself in college?
Slow. Down. There’s so much to do and see in college, so many people to meet, trips to go on, classes to take, and things to look forward to, but don’t try and do it all in one day. It’s going to fly by in a blink of an eye. Take a second to appreciate where you are now.
