    “On the Spot: Nancy Kelly, Undergraduate program coordinator for department of communication”

    Are you a dog or cat person?

    Cat, because they are furry. I just prefer cats. I don’t like walking dogs. I have always been a cat person. Unfortunately I am very allergic to them.

    Cat people tend to be more diva-ish, is that you?

    Absolutely not. I like sparkle and bling, but I am definitely not a diva. If you knew me you would know that. I was a tomboy growing up.

    What is the biggest risk you have taken in your life?

    Besides surfing on my 1962 custom made, eight and a half foot long board from the ages of four to 16, I would have to say jumping off a cliff into a rock quarry. I was 17 years old in Safford, Maine.

    What inspired you to do such a task?

    Oh, you know, somebody dared me and I am the dare girl.

    Number one thing on your bucket list?

    Number one thing? I’d get back on the surfboard. Number two is, my grandmother sold hot dogs at Fenway Park and I come from Boston so it’s been probably 25 years since I’ve seen a Red Sox game and I’d really like to do that. My third one is to make sure I get to my girl friend’s 50th birthday next year in Dublin, Ireland and maybe see a little of Europe while I am there.
