Why did you choose Hobart and William Smith Colleges? I chose William Smith after an amazing weekend stay with members of the William Smith Tennis team while I was a senior in high school. The encounters I had with Admissions, Athletics, students, professors and the campus itself were inspiring and made the impact on my heart I had been searching for.
How do you stay connected to the Colleges? I stay connected through conversations with friends who are alums, reading The Pulteney Street Survey, regular website searches and making financial contributions to the Colleges.
What makes the Colleges special? The Colleges are special because they offer highly stimulating opportunities for their students to think critically about local, national and global issues and foster students' personal visions of how to create more ethical, sustainable and enriching communities to live and work in after college.
Why do you give back to HWS? I give back to HWS because the lessons learned while as a student have served me incredibly well in life as an employer, wife, mother and community advocate and I want for countless new students to experience the same.
What are your goals as a Regional Network volunteer? My goal is to best support the efforts of the Alumni and Alumnae Associations. By connecting alums in interesting new ways, I hope that the shared bonds between and fond memories with, will assist alums in finding service, financial, and social opportunities to share with The Colleges in meaningful ways.
What advice would you give to an incoming or current HWS student? Enjoy the challenges of learning, lead with your heart and surround yourself with people of integrity.
