    What do I do here at Seattle University?

    Managing Editor, Marketing Communications Editor, Seattle University Magazine and President’s Report.

    Past Experience:

    Former Seattle Times writer; editor for a chain of small town newspapers; freelance writer.

    Biggest pet peeves?

    People who go out of their way to be cruel and mean-spirited. Even bigger pet peeve: when they try to justify it by saying, “I’m just being honest.” Honesty is a virtue. Boorish behavior, not so much.

    Coffee Preference?

    Single Venti iced, non-fat, sugar-free vanilla latte. Yes, I’m one of those people.

    Favorite Sports teams?

    I am a hometown girl so I always root for the home teams, so the Seahawks, Mariners and Sounders.

    Most embarrassing song you love?

    I say, unabashedly and without an ounce of irony—so I guess I’m not embarrassed by the choice after all—“Making Love Out of Nothing At All” by Air Supply.
