Professional bona fides: I manage the college’s website and social media, but I moonlight as a substitute librarian at Watertown Free Public Library in my spare time. I’m a bit of a workaholic, but I love both organizations.
Charitable involvement: I’m a member of the MassCreative Leadership Council. I’ve been a volunteer with Boston Cares for nearly 10 years, and I also volunteer with the Boston Book Festival.
Awards: A few years ago, I won a poetry contest by the New York Public Library.
In your spare time: I’m always looking forward to my next getaway. In the past few years, I’ve traveled to Morocco, the Canary Islands, Madrid, Norway, Barcelona, Paris, London, Puerto Rico, Grand Cayman and domestically as well. The world is such a big place, and there’s so much to see and experience.
Bookworm cred: I’m a voracious reader. My goal is to read 65 books this year. I also regularly attend author talks in town and love getting lost while browsing in bookstores.
Best feature: I’d say my smile, but former beaus have admired other bits.
Celebrity crush: Joseph Gordon-Levitt
If you were an ice cream flavor, you would be: Mint-chocolate chip. Cool and refreshing, with a burst of flavor in every bite.
Craziest thing you ever did for love (or lust): After rekindling with an ex at a mutual friend’s wedding, I flew across the country to be with him. It—unsurprisingly—ended in a deluge of tears and a hastily booked flight back home.
Favorite flower: Peonies. They blossom from a tiny bud into expansive, fragile petals, with the most enticing scent. They seem kind of magical.
