What makes Charlottesville-Albemarle special to you?
The diverse community and culture in Charlottesville has been instrumental in making me who I am today. I was born in Martha Jefferson Hospital and have spent my entire life living in the same house. Wherever I go, I always seem to know someone and that sense of belonging is one that I have yet to find anywhere else.
Most looking forward to about working at Charlottesville Tomorrow?
Getting to explore and learn about parts of the community that I don’t know much about.
Ultimate Charlottesville Saturday?
Brunch at Blue Grass Grill followed by a stroll downtown. An afternoon spent relaxing at Cville Coffee with a good book and then catching a show at The Garage with a slice from Christian’s Pizza in hand.
Favorite arts and culture venue in Charlottesville and away from Charlottesville?
IX Art Park is one of my favorite art spots in town because of its eclectic feel and the expansive photoshoot opportunities. A quick drive to Richmond leads to a day spent either at The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts or exploring the street art throughout the city.
Most interesting trip away from Charlottesville?
During my senior year of high school, I spent my spring break in Cuba on a school trip. We explored Havana at night, riding in brightly colored, old-fashioned cars, hiked through forests and saw plants and wildlife I had only seen in movies, and met with Cubans who opened their houses to us and shared their stories.
What’s still on your bucket list?
Go scuba diving, travel to every state in the U.S., see a whale.
