What are some of your favorite hobbies?
A hobby that I never see myself growing out of is exercise. The feeling I get when I’m moving my body is exhilarating. SoulCycle and Orangetheory are where you’ll typically find me when I’m in my “grind” phase but, I don’t limit myself to only those places. Trying out new fitness classes is exciting to me because it’s a great way to expand my horizons. Otherwise, I enjoy doing at-home workouts or going on long walks or runs outside. When I’m not exercising, I enjoy reading new books. Currently, my nose is stuck in “Untamed” by Glennon Doyle. There is something so surreal about allowing a plot to transport you to another world and letting your imagination run wild. I think I get my interest in reading from my mom; she goes through books faster than anyone I’ve ever met.
Have any fashion advice that you stick to?
Being a senior in college, I have gone through many fashion trends. After going through a variety of trends, I have realized that the key to good fashion is keeping your closet timeless. There are clothing pieces that will never go out of style, such as a good turtleneck or a little black dress. Investing in timeless items is a great way to acquire a higher-quality closet. I have found that it also saves money because I go for long periods in between shopping sprees since my items last longer.
Favorite vacation destination?
My favorite vacation destination is Italy. I went there this past summer on a study abroad trip with my school. From the food and culture to the beautiful scenery, my trip to Italy was truly a dream come true. My favorite memory from that trip was visiting the Colosseum. It felt so surreal to be standing in the middle of the rich history towering above me. While visiting historical sites was captivating, indulging in meals every day was simply marvelous. As far as Italian food goes, carbonara cannot be beaten, it is completely delicious!
What’s your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part about working at Anglin is the people I work with. Everyone that works at Anglin is unbelievably kind and insightful- I am always learning something new. Each individual brings different skills to the table and it is incredible to be immersed with such a hardworking group of people. I also enjoy being able to contribute to brainstorms and bouncing ideas off of each other. Every day Anglin further develops me as a PR professional and I am grateful for this experience!
