Where did you meet?
A dodgeball tournament at SJC.

Yes — Thom Boody.

Favorite budding SJC courtship memory?​
The dodgeball tournament. 

Where was your first date?
Stony Brook AMC.

First movie you saw together: 
Couples Retreat (first date).

The proposal:
It was just us on a local beach were I grew up. Chris decorated the gazebo with lights, and he made wooden signs with the words "will you marry me" leading up to him. 

According to a Facebook study, 28 percent of married couples attended the same college. What is it about College that makes it the right place for so many people to meet their spouses?
A person really develops into who they will be during their college years.

What's your message to the SJC community this Valentine's Day?
Celebrate and appreciate your relationship every day, not just on Valentine's Day.

“Neither one of us was supposed to come here. Chris was supposed to go away, and I wanted to go to Suffolk. But my brother (Michael Meyers ’08) told me, 'You're going to St. Joe's.' And a week before college started, Chris decided to stay home. This school really is the reason we're together. It was destiny.”
