What is something interesting that people may not know about you?
I grew up horse back riding and now volunteer at a ranch that rehabilitates rescued horses in Southeast Florida.

What are you most looking forward to this summer with the NRO?
I attended NRO on violin in 2010, and after twelve years, I’m finally returning back to Breckenridge! Having been familiar with the area, I’m looking forward to building relationships and getting to know the community that I know makes Breckenridge so special.

What activities/hobbies do you most enjoy?
Netflix and a cozy blanket.
