Jeopardy!

In January 2014, I was a five-time champion on the game show Jeopardy!. It was an amazing experience and the fulfillment of a life's dream to even appear on the show, much less win. I also returned for the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions in November 2014.

I am happy to have had a platform to talk about topics that are important to me, such as study abroad, blood donation, and the bone marrow registry.

If you enjoyed watching me on TV, you can follow my public Facebook page to get updates on the show.

Gilbert & Sullivan

Since January 2021, I have served as editor of the FUMGASS (Friends of the University of Michigan Gilbert And Sullivan Society) newsletter, GASBAG (Gilbert and Sullivan Boys and Girls). I serve on the board of the organization, which provides support to the University of Michigan Gilbert And Sullivan Society, the oldest college-based Gilbert & Sullivan society in the United States.

As GASBAG editor I solicit, compile, and edit articles, reviews and letters from Gilbert and Sullivan fans all over the world as well as contributing my own work. I have found this to be a fun and enriching outlet for my creativity and a great opportunity to learn more about G&S scholarship.

Since the death of my mother from leukemia in 2013, I have been an active proponent of blood donation and supported the Be the Match bone marrow registry and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

My family and I have organized and volunteered at blood and bone marrow drives as well as raising funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and I was happy to have the platform on Jeopardy! to speak about bone marrow donation and encourage others to join the registry.
