Why did you choose Belmont?
Belmont was the perfect size school for what I was looking for and I knew right away there was a great community and support system here. It also had an amazing theatre program, that since I began, has provided me with the most amazing opportunities.

Why did you choose to be a Tour Guide?
There is so much passion in me to connect with prospective families. Both students and parents are eager to discover Belmont and all of the great things it has to offer, I just really wanted to be part of that process. I want to show families what Belmont has done for me and what Belmont can do for them too.

What is your favorite on-campus event?
My favorite on-campus event is ATO Jailbreak. I think it’s a super clever and hilarious way to raise money for a really amazing cause. I gave a tour last school year during this event and had to explain to my group why fraternity brothers were running around in cop uniforms and students standing in a makeshift jail. It was a pretty entertaining your for sure!

What is your favorite movie?
My Big Fat Greek Wedding

What is your favorite song & artist/band?
I’m a huge fan of the song The Story, but not the actual version, the one Sara Ramirez sings on the Grey’s Anatomy musical episode. I’m obsessed with that entire soundtrack.

What would you want to be your last meal on earth?
Definitely spaghetti and meatballs, but my mom has to make the pasta sauce or else it doesn’t count.

What is your favorite Nashville experience?
I love being touristy so any day that includes eating lunch at Burger Up and then getting dessert at Las Paletas is a good day for me!

What is your dream career after graduating from Belmont?
I would love to move to New York and perform forever and ever.

What is your favorite class that you have taken at Belmont and why?
Power and Desire in Shakespeare taught by Dr. Jayme Yeo. I already loved Shakespeare, but that course took it to a whole new level.

If you could go back in time and give advice about college to 16-17 year old you, what would you say?
I would say keep an open mind and don’t sell yourself short. There are a million things to do and get involved with at Belmont and an amazing opportunity might be waiting for you around the most unexpected of corners.
