About me: I cannot put into words how excited I am for a second year as part of the Orange Jackets Executive Board! I am a business major who loves problem solving and Times New Roman (seriously, I don't use any other font). Fun facts include my obsession with tattoos, my secret dream of being a wedding planner, and my love of movies getting Oscars buzz. I am really really really bad a texting, but I want to spend this year being totally available to actives, Taps, and alumni, so just keep sending me emojis until I reply.
