Hello, everyone! I am a third year Ph.D. in English student hailing from Cleveland, Ohio. I studied English and Italian at the University of Notre Dame (Go, Irish!), where I earned both my B.A. and M.A. My work focuses on early modern English texts, and I also study Anglo-Italian literary relations. Here at Butler, I coordinate the Butler/Wilson 5k and help organize Upper Class Social Hour, and I’ve taken groups to high tea and a Downton Abbey Exhibition! On campus, I sing for Sunday Mass with the Aquinas choir and co-organize the Renaissance Colloquium. I look forward to getting to know each of you this year. Let’s share stories, explore Princeton’s hiking and biking trails, and see some of the many musical and theatrical performances the area has to offer.
