Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? My teammate Alissa Frazee, who graduated last year. She helped and continues to help me have courage to let my faith direct every aspect of my life. She's also a strong, motivated, tons-of-fun running buddy and a dear friend.

What is your favorite memory from a community service project you’ve been involved at Hope? I loved tackling yard work with fellow Hope Catholics club members during a Habitat for Humanity build. We met a friendly cat from the house next door and made a great deal of progress on the yard, all while having tons of fun.

You may end up scraped, bruised, dazed, and sopping wet afterwards, but you get back up and you keep on going. It's a lifestyle.
