Interesting Fact About Me: I have personally attended over 25 different campus tours as a parent with my own three children. I enjoyed this time of imagining possibilities, and hope to be a resource to others as they navigate this exciting time of exploration.

Favorite Place to Go in the Hamline-Midway Neighborhood: I have lived two blocks from campus for 30 years. I love this neighborhood! This location makes it easy to get to either downtown Minneapolis or Saint Paul in a few minutes, and gives me access to a huge variety of locally-owned restaurants. I love my caring and quirky neighbors, and I appreciate my neighborhood's walkability, including my "commute" to work, which takes me across Hamline's beautiful campus.

Why I Love Hamline: Pipers are impressive! They dig into academics and activities with full energy and passion, and create valuable connections and hands-on experiences along the way.
