Tori is from Sandusky, Ohio where she’ll gladly tell you about her favorite coasters at Cedar Point.

Her love for writing began in second grade after she won a Christmas story publication contest for her local newspaper. Since then, she constantly has ideas in her head and a pen in her hand. Tori is an English major through and through with various on-campus jobs that have books or writing as the focus. Her help desk at Roesch Library is surrounded by books she still has to read, and she is involved on campus by interviewing people for UD Magazine or covering events for Flyer News. When she’s not working, you will probably find her running with UD Running Club, listening to an audiobook, or playing Pokémon.
