Personal Biography:

After living most of my life in Illinois, Madison became my home in fall of 2013 after I enrolled at the UW to work on my Ph.D. in Italian film. When I’m not working as the WEG Student Coordinator, I teach courses both in the Italian and Communication Arts Departments here on campus. I truly enjoy teaching; the classroom is transformative not only for the student, but also for the instructor!

Favorite Quote:

What every student should know about the UW campus:

No matter how much you think you may know about UW’s campus and the city of Madison, I promise, there is always more to learn and to discover.
