Most recently, I spent time at the Fulton Theatre, a regional theatre in Lancaster, PA, working as a Marketing and PR Intern during the summer of 2022. Beyond theatre, my passions include singing, reading, arts and crafts, and playing piano!

Many students thrive with a busy schedule while participating in multiple activities. But if you are like me and often find yourself struggling under the pressure, there is no shame in cutting back on your responsibilities. College burnout is real.
