A native Virginian, I live amongst the mountains and rivers of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. I became an Unbound student in the fall of 2018 and was part of the Business and Leadership program that year. In 2019, I served on the Student Leadership Initiative. My hobbies include reading, traveling, hiking, canoeing, and doing just about anything with my family of eight. I'm passionate about creating community, and I am so excited to do that through APEX and the theme we have chosen for this year. My vision is that APEX would create lifelong friendships and equip us to become leaders who build true community and share light in a dark and lonely world.
