What do you do to make a Healthy UNH? I try to utilize the Hamel Rec Center and all its resources as often as possible and invite others to join me when I go. It’s really nice to have others for company and accountability and I always feel much better after a good workout.

Favorite Food: Fresh-picked Apples

Favorite Movie: The Blind Side

Favorite Book: The Outliers

What place in the world do you most want to visit & why: I want to travel to Ireland because it’s part of my heritage and, as an adventurer and foodie, I have a desire to hike the mountains of Ireland by day and taste its most popular comfort foods by night.

Favorite Dining Hall and why: I like eating at Holloway Commons because there’s a wide variety of options to choose from, it’s in a central location, and I always bump into friends while I’m there.

 What do you love about UNH? In my opinion, there’s so much to love about UNH! One of the best qualities is that there’s always something going on that meets various interests. There’s something here for almost everyone and, if there isn’t, you can always create something, like your very own club.

As a Healthy UNH Intern, What are you most excited about? After 3 ½ years of following along with the Healthy UNH blog and events, I am most excited to be working behind the scenes and sharing ideas with the other interns to create an even healthier UNH.
