Anything Special to Share: I am happily married to my college sweetheart, Ben Lilley '10!

Favorite Professor in College: This is tough! I was also a math minor, and I love the entire Math Division, but if I had to pick, I'd say Dr. Bill Yankosky!

Favorite Memory from College: Ah! I have so many fond memories of Wesleyan! My most favorite memory though, would have to be the day that my husband proposed to me! He sent me on a scavenger hunt all over campus, leading from one location to another, and finally ending up in the campus chapel where he was waiting for me in the prayer room! The chapel will always be near and dear to me, as both a real memory and symbol of our commitment to one another and to God!
