My Greatest Supporters

Biggest Thank You to my Saint Mary's family who I cannot live without: Veronica Nims, Sarah Gallo, Louis Marin, Noah Moretti, Emilio Takenaga, Brett MacDonald, Ariana Harr, Lindsey Robles, Brendan Carr, Chuck Novak and the entire Mitty Mob!
To my top educators: Neeley Silberman, Chad Arnold, Steve Miller, Norrie Palmer and Dan Leopard.
Lastly my family! Mom, Ryan, Dad, Grammy, GPF and Gueli.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

My best memory has to be the First Year Soiree. This guy tried to dance battle me and he ripped off his shirt and the crowd went wild, and when I tried to rebuttal I fell and sprained my ankle and had to crawl to Mitty. That was the night I became a living legend on this campus and made many of my longest friendships, even the guy who showed me up in the dance battle.

My Next Chapter

Starting next week I will be working full time as a Marketing Coordinator for a local Keller Williams Realty branch, The Renee White Team, in Walnut Creek. I am excited to apply what I have learned as a Communication Major to my career and hopefully learn lots on the job! I hope to be moving in with some of my Saint Mary's family here in the East Bay ASAP.
