Since graduating from UL in 2012, I’ve spent my time working as a designer at IDI Workspaces. In my free time, I’m attempting to beat my last running time, searching for a good wine, the tastiest coffee, and the best sunset. Wishing I could do all of this from a bike!

Favorite Restaurant:

Personal Statement

I’ve been a member of The705 since 2015 and have really come to appreciate all the different opportunities for involvement through this organization. One of my main decisions in joining a few years ago was the philanthropy opportunities. I like being part of a team that has the same passions as I do and The705 does just that. I’ve enjoyed the philanthropy events that I’ve attended and meeting people who are like-minded about how we can actively improve Acadiana.
