Howl About You

Employee Spotlight Series

NC State employs more than 8,000 employees who work across a multitude of colleges, divisions, departments, offices and units that spread across the state. Even though some of us have developed close professional relationships and friendships with colleagues, for many of us getting to know anyone other than our daily co-workers is difficult. That’s why we’ve created Howl About You, a page where we shine a spotlight on our employees by letting them share five facts about themselves. As you read the entries on Howl About You, we hope you discover someone who shares the same professional or personal interests as you and make a connection with them.

I was born and raised in the small town of Waitsfield, Vermont.

I speak both English and French fluently. In fact, one of my first jobs was working for the Ben & Jerry’s Factory as a French translator and gift shop employee.

I am left-handed, which led to my recruitment to play NCAA Division II bowling and softball in college.

I won the February 2016 Diet and Dr. Pepper Sales Competition while working as a waitress at Kanki Japanese House of Steaks and Sushi Bar, which then led me to pursue a career in sales/recruitment.

I have attended three historically Black universities: Lincoln University of Pennsylvania, North Carolina Central University and Winston-Salem State University.

How To Participate

We’d love for you to submit five facts about yourself so we can share them on our website and/or in Howl You Know, the HR newsletter. Just fill out this form, and our communications team will review your submission for publication. If you have questions or know of an employee who would be great for us to spotlight, send an email to and write Howl About You in the subject line.
