I have a BA from Franklin & Marshall College in Anthropology, graduated with Academics Honors, and was the recipient of the Charles H. Holzinger Award in Anthropology upon graduation and I minored in English. During my time at Franklin & Marshall I was a Senior Teaching Assistant/Preceptor for a Freshman Writing seminar where I worked with new students to develop their writing skills, adjust to college level work, and act as a relatable liaison between the professor. I also was the editor of one of the campus's student run academic journals...

While it's not academic, my current job does come with the unexpected task of constantly needing to adjust to people's personal needs and requirements. To keep things running smoothly on a set, I have to be able to quickly assess the best way to met the needs of a wide variety of people on the fly. This ability to adapt to all kinds of people and situations has been invaluable to me throughout all my jobs.
