Major at Kenyon: Psychology

City of birth: Mt. Kisco, New York

Occupation: Kindergarten teacher

How long have you lived in D.C.? 2.5 years

What brought you here? Graduate degree and work

Best part of living in D.C.: Food culture! 

Worst part of living in D.C.: Is there one? 

A place in D.C. that reminds you most of Kenyon: The National Mall is the United States’ version of Middle Path.

Best hidden gem in your city: The culinary hub Union Market. 

Local business you enjoy supporting during the pandemic: Restaurants that are owned by families of children in my class! Walters Sports Bar and Nina May are my personal favorites. 

Best restaurant take-out/delivery in D.C.: Due South for the best Southern comfort food around.

Favorite pandemic-safe leisure activity: Outdoor spin classes 

Anything else? One of my favorite things to do (pre-pandemic) is to chat with new people while I’m out and about to hear their connections to the different neighborhoods. Each one can be so vastly different from another that is two blocks away. I love being able to walk through a block of all restaurants that then run into all historical brownstones. It’s truly incredible.
