She attended the prestigious school of Burlington Notre Dame where she was a 4-sport athlete as well as Student Council President. She is pursuring her degree in Marketing and Management with a minor in Organizational Leadership! She hopes to make herself known in the Business world as a successful young woman who will one day be a millionaire and no longer have to worry about those annoying student loans. Avalon is a member of the Women's soccer team, Vice President of the student body (Student Government Association), Vice President of MACA (Multicultural Affairs Community Action), works for Campus Recreation as a referee, and is an active member of Habitat for Humanity, Dance Marathon, and more! (Want to get involved? SHE'S YOUR GIRL!) She's a very easy going person who loves to meet new people so don't be afraid to introduce yourself! In what little free time she does have, she loves to watch movies, eat good food, read a book, or just be outside. After a busy year of "finding herself" last year, she looks forward to sharing her experiences with her residents and making their time at Ambrose the best it can be.
