Class of 2016

Mathematics major, Astronomy minor

I am a senior Mathematics major with an Astronomy minor here at JMU and I've been working at the planetarium since January of 2014. I love my job, and I am always excited to discuss topics of science, especially astronomy, with anyone who has questions. I was raised in Leesburg, VA and came to JMU my Junior year after studying at the University of Mary Washington for two years. My hobbies also include Fencing, a club which I am also the Vice President of, and biking, which despite having a car is my main mode of transportation. As I grow older, I want to learn as much as I can about the universe and I'll do whatever I can to continue on this path!
