What brought you to Notre Dame?
I grew up in Elkhart which is in the shadow of Notre Dame. I grew up a football fan and had the BIGGEST crush on Brady Quinn when he was quarterback for the team. Football was such a way of life for my family that I actually wasn't "allowed" to attend Purdue University because Notre Dame regularly played them. I went to Ball State University and just fell in love with the university feel and culture. I knew I wanted to be around this energy for my career.
What's your favorite book?
My favorite book is "Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office 101" by Lois P. Frankel. I learned about unconscious mistakes I make as a woman that a man wouldn't do. I would highly recommend it to anyone, especially a young college graduate.
