I used to tell people my claims to fame were playing on two National Championship football teams at the University of Oklahoma and serving an LDS mission in South America. But now my claim to fame, together with my wife, is having raised five good children; four of whom have graduated from Southern Virginia. I grew up playing in rock bands, playing sports, and spending time with my family. My favorite band right now is Imagine Dragons.
I am a California girl that has always loved the beauty of the East Coast. I love to travel and have been to 15 different countries. I am one of six girls and I always find myself on crazy adventures with my sisters. I love to explore and try new things. I love animals, especially my dachshund, Arthur. I recently graduated from Southern Virginia University where I majored in History with a minor in Politics. I love this school, I love it’s values, and I love how it has helped me grow. I cannot wait to share that love with you!
With a name like that, you’re probably wondering whats my ethnicity. I’m Armenian, and also Ecuadorian! My name means lily in Armenian. I’m from Brooklyn NY, and a recent graduate from Southern Virginia with a Family and Child Development Major. I met my best friend here at SVU on the first day of freshmen orientation back in 2011. My best friend soon became my husband 17 months after I returned from serving a full time mission in Armenia. I love a good Latin dance session, and jamming out to opera. But most importantly I love Southern Virginia University so much. It truly has lead me/prepared me to do and receive so many wonderful things.
I am originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, but I have lived in Buena Vista and been involved with Southern Virginia for about a decade. I have really come to love the university and all that I have been able to do here. I am a Business Management and Leadership major, but I have participated in theater, a cappella, choir, student executive council, comedy improv, and soccer. While I enjoy just about any physical activity, I also love to read and write. I learned to tolerate the cold from serving an LDS mission to northern Alberta. I love SVU and feel lucky to be a part of it.
