    I’m an outdoors enthusiast: I enjoy biking, rock climbing, camping, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, and I was a member of the Lehigh Outdoors Club as an undergrad. Also, while studying as an undergrad, I participated in the club lacrosse team and the crew team. I’ve also done volunteer work, when possible, through the Community Service Office at Lehigh.
