Favorite College Activity: During my time at Hamline, I was a student athlete on the track and field team, and a member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). SAAC was a great way to stay connected with other athletes on campus, and a fun way to get involved with school and community events.

I also held a work study position as a student ambassador, which consisted mainly of giving campus tours. This position helped me discover my passion for working with prospective college students and inspired me to pursue a career as an admissions counselor.

Interesting Fact About Me: I spent six months studying in Florence, Italy, and traveling around Europe with my best friend!

Favorite Place to Go in the Hamline-Midway Neighborhood: I love Gingkos. It is a quaint coffee shop very close to campus with great coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and vibes.

Why I Love Hamline: I love Hamline for its tight knit and diverse community. I have always felt very welcome as a student and now as a staff member.
