Interesting Fact: ­­­­­­­­­­­­I’m a Jazzercise instructor at the Columbia Jazzercise Center. I get to meet and motivate a lot of really wonderful people there. Come dance with me early in the morning four days a week.

Favorite Hobby: My husband and I are do-it-yourselfers. In our home we always have some project(s) in progress. We have quite a collection of power tools and we’ll tackle almost anything with the help of our dads and YouTube!

Favorite books: I love to read fiction and novels. When I was a kid, I read at every opportunity – including many inopportune times. These days, I usually squelch the urge when it isn’t socially acceptable – but I’m always tempted! I rarely read a book twice but some exceptions are Pride & Prejudice, The Poisonwood Bible, Harry Potter (all of them!), and Gone with the Wind.

Favorite Campus Spot: It’s hard to pick just one favorite campus spot. I love the Reading Room in Ellis Library. It is one of the grandest and most elegant spaces on any college campus. And I also love any bench around the Quad. On sunny summer days I love to sit for a bit in the fresh air.
