Virginia, attending James Madison University
and, in 2005, earned my bachelor’s degree in fine

as I broaden my interests, I enjoy staying physically
active by participating in any activity or sport that
allows me to meet new people while simultaneously
engaging in competition. Among my favorites are
volleyball, softball, flag football, and running. It is
not unusual for me to be seen in a gym or on a field
