Carlene Hastings

Georgetown University
My favorite motto

Even the word impossible says “I’m possible.”

My favorite childhood book

Nancy Drew! I loved her curiosity, fearlessness, and drive to solve mysteries.

Something most people might not know

I was a competitive dancer (ballet, tap, jazz, modern) from age 6 through high school.

Favorite part of working at Eagle Hill

The collaboration! You never feel like you’re on your own or need to tackle something alone.

The qualities that make me “unconventional”

I enjoy reading and always have a rotating mix of topics, styles, and genres of books going any one time. I love pulling threads from different ideas I’ve read together to solve problems.

When I was last outside of my comfort zone

Attempting a complicated new recipe in the kitchen! I’m not the best / most confident chef, but I pushed through. It came out ok, but I learned a few lessons along the way for next time!
