My Hometown: I grew up in a town of about 165 people called Wendell, which is in Minnesota. However, Minneapolis, MN is the place I call home.

Why did I choose ISU: I chose the Department of Residence at ISU because they value their students and student input in the community. I believe it is essential for students to be invested in their communities in order for it to feel like home, and that having a voice in the community is how one feels invested. The department jived with my philosophy on community. Also, this campus is beautiful.

What I like best about working at at ISU: College is a time when students are learning new things, testing and developing their morals and values, and start growing in their understanding of the world around them. It’s extraordinary to be a part of that journey and a contributor to those conversations.
