Fun Fact: I have a side gig crocheting which I have been doing since my senior year of college.  One thing I love to make are little red hats that I have donated to the American Heart Little Hats, Big Hearts campaign.

Favorite Buffalo Food Spot: A Bruiser Burger from Grover's!

Perfect Weekend in Buffalo: Festival weekends are always fun in Buffalo!  There is a festival for anything and everything during all seasons.  It is nice to be outside, eat amazing food, and participate in the Buffalo community.

Favorite Unique Canisius Experience: My favorite aspect of Canisius is the sense of community and the people!  Being a student here my professors cared about me as a person: they mentored me, taught me valuable life lessons, and cared about my 5:00 pm -9:00 pm self, as well as, my 9:00 AM- 5:00 PM self.  Now working here I felt even more welcomed as a professional.  The people that make up Canisius are great!
