How did attending Walker’s impact your path and where you are now?

It gave the ability to advocate for myself as I knew nobody when I came to Walkers as a junior from the Midwest from public school.

What do you find to be the most rewarding part of being on the Alumnae Board?

Watching EWS grow into what she is now!!! I also love getting to know many Walker’s women over the years that I didn’t know.

What is your favorite memory or tradition from your time at Walker’s?

Dogswood Day!

What is a fun fact about you?

I learned to play bridge at Walker’s, and knit sweaters in the round during class.
