Personal Interests

I was a lifelong New England resident before joining the team here at Lees-McRae. I love chasing sunsets and sunrises, as well as finding new lookouts that are perfect for both! When I’m not out of the house, I enjoy kicking my feet up with a nice ball of yarn and knitting to my heart’s content. Banner Elk is a unique in the fact that you can explore the outdoors, and twenty minutes later you could be poking around local shops or trying new restaurants (or even be back at home with your knitting). A tip I would give to future Bobcats would be within the phrase “what’s your one?” There are so many ways to be involved on and off campus. Even if you only try one new thing while at Lees-McRae, what will it be?
