Area: Friley Hall Director - Upper
Office: 2416D Friley Hall
Phone: 515-294-9564

My Hometown: Sioux Falls, SD

Why did I choose ISU: I served as the ACUHOI intern back in summer 2015 so already had a great experience with Iowa State! I particularly loved working with the staff members in the Department of Residence as well as across campus.

  • Master of Education in Science: Higher Education & Student Affairs (Indiana University)
Work Experience
  • Previously, I have worked as an Area Coordinator at Northern State University in Aberdeen, SD.
Volunteer Experience
  • After undergrad, I served two years as an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer: one year in McMinnville, Oregon, and the other in Des Moines, Iowa. This was an amazing experience that allowed me to work in higher education civic engagement initiatives and really developed my passion for working with college students.
