Favorite Aspect of Bren/Why You Work at Bren: Working at Bren is great not only because the students are dynamic, but the Bren staff is also a welcoming team to be a part of. This community really cares about what and how students are learning and is always looking for new ways to better prepare students for life after Bren.
Personal Interests: I enjoy being in the outdoors and participating in group fitness classes. I am always up for trying a new restaurant, and Santa Barbara is a great place for both of these activities. I like taking my Australian Shepard, Sadie, on hikes or to the beach. I also like watching college football.
