What She Did at Holy Cross
“I majored in mathematics with minors in French and art history, and spent my junior year abroad in Dijon, France. While on campus, I played the flute with the Goodtime Marching Band and Jazz Ensemble, danced on the Ballroom Dance Team and worked in the Holy Cross Fund Office.”

How Holy Cross Affected Her Life
“Holy Cross fostered my lifelong love of learning, and helped me to become more open-minded and aware of my surroundings. During my four years, I met such amazing people, and made so many wonderful memories that I hold dear to my heart.”

The Working Life
“I am currently an underwriter at Acadia Insurance, a W. R. Berkley Company. Acadia is a property and casualty insurance company located throughout New England. After graduation, I started in their Insurance Training Program, and now I work with independent agents in the Massachusetts region on middle market commercial accounts. I really enjoy the working world.  My co-workers treat each other like family, and are invested in helping me reach my full potential.”

Holy Cross Memories
“Late nights doing homework in Cool Beans, dancing with the band at football games and any time spent with my roommates amount to only a few of my memorable moments on The Hill. Both lectures and office hours with Professor Shannon Stock were always insightful and entertaining.”  

Why She Stays Connected to Holy Cross
“The Holy Cross community is comprised of such wonderful people. I stay connected because reminiscing and catching up with old friends brings joy to my life. In addition, the beauty of campus never ceases to amaze me.”

Why She Believes in Holy Cross
“I believe in Holy Cross because I believe in its Jesuit values and its people. As an institution of men and women for and with others, Holy Cross creates compassionate leaders who carry on the tradition of giving back to the community. When I was applying for jobs, the alumni that I reached out to for support, guidance and networking were incredibly gracious and kind. There is a certain bond that Crusaders share, that is timeless throughout generations.”  

Why She Gives to Holy Cross
“I give because my donation is first and foremost a statement that I both value and appreciate the education that I was fortunate enough to receive, and I support the effort to provide such a high-caliber education to future generations. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to learn and grow in such a wonderful environment, and I give back so that future generations can have similar opportunities.”  ■
