What drew you to Washington, D.C. and Catholic University?
I consider myself lucky for the fact that both of my parents grew up in Brookland and just a 5 minute walk to campus. I have been on campus as either a fan, student, coach, or counselor since I was 10 years old, so my decision to attend Catholic U. was an easy one back in 2010. With that said, I think Catholic U. has a dynamic combination of opportunities that enrich each student’s life from aspects that include academics, faith, social life, and job opportunities!
What is D.C.'s best kept secret?
A. Litteri. It is an old-school Italian grocery store and deli.
Best sub in town!
What is your favorite thing to do in D.C.?
Watch the city erupt when the Capitals, Mystics, and Nationals all won championships.
What is your most memorable moment on campus?
In 2016 I was awarded a custom “Cardinal Red” CatholicU blazer for my time spent working with the men’s and women’s basketball programs.
Where is your favorite place to dine in D.C.?
The Dubliner (4 F St NW, Washington, DC 20001)
