I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a major in History and minors in Political Science and Spanish. I have lived in Washington, DC, since November 2012 and have worked on Capitol Hill for political campaigns, an area which I plan to continue pursuing until I go to graduate school. While in college, I spent a six weeks in the summer in Madrid and took the opportunity to improve my Spanish through Washington University classes and strong cultural immersion. I spent my second semester in junior year studying abroad in Ireland. I have tutored a group class on the SAT and have learned best practices at both teaching and managing to maintain the attention of a group of high school students (much tougher than it sounds, shockingly). I have been reading more in the last few years than I did while I was in school and love when I find a book where I don't hit a wall halfway through. I am currently reading "What It Takes", by Richard Ben Cramer, widely considered to be the greatest book ever written about political campaigns, while other recently completed books include "Ball Four," by Jim Bouton, and a biography on Joe DiMaggio. Other interests include politics, New York sports (Yankees/Giants/Knicks – please don't talk to me about the Knicks)
