Nothing inspires me more than students who dig deep and continue to challenge themselves, stretch their limits, and not give up when things get tough.
What’s your favorite hobby?
Baseball has always been something that connected our family, and listening to games on the radio at night with my family as a child is always a memory that I hold dear. I’m a die-hard Red Sox fan!
