A Broadway nerd at heart, she spends her free time stalking her favorite stars and watching way too many shows. If you happen to be a Top Gear/Grand Tour fan, please hit her up since she watches an unhealthy amount of both shows and knows enough for her obsession to be considered…well, an obsession. She is very excited to be one of your AUSGs of Crisis for NYUMUNC X and looks forward to working with you all!
