University townhouses surround the Georgetown campus along 36th, 37th, O, N, and Prospect Streets. Townhouses vary in size, levels, and capacity, and contain unique layout features. Some houses are designated as historic by the Georgetown Historical Society. While these houses serve as an alternative to on-campus residence buildings, townhouse residents remain conveniently close to campus and receive University maintenance services.

Originally from the suburbs of Illinois (anyone from Downers Grove?), I am very excited to be at Georgetown University and in Washington, D.C.! As an undergraduate and graduate student, I have worked for residence life and multicultural centers as well as various nonprofit organizations. In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, blogging, watching Bollywood movies, dancing, cooking, checking out a GU sporting event, and exploring the city!
Professionally, I am engaged in conversations about diversity and social justice across all identities, power and privilege, as well as continued exploration of self-care and Jesuit philosophies.
