Biography

MN Territories: Metro Private Schools

Other State Territories: AK, AZ, CO, FL, HI, ID, MT, OR, WA, WY

Education: BA Speech/Theater with a Communication Emphasis

High School attended: Havre High School, Havre, Montana

Favorite College Activity: Such a tough decision! I was a Junior Counselor in college, which is a similar role to a Resident Assistant. I lived in a residence hall with new first-year students, organizing social events and providing advice and support as they made the transition to college life. Living on campus can be such a formative experience for first year students. I am still connected to many of the students who lived on my wing!

Interesting Fact: I grew up in Montana, have lived in the Pacific Northwest, and now am happy to call Minnesota home. I love to be outside, even when it snows!

Why I Love Hamline: I appreciate the fact that we are committed to experiential education - 100%! The opportunity to apply what you are learning in the classroom to a real life experience, whether that be an internship, a study abroad adventure, or a research project, is priceless. Hamline integrates these experiences into the curriculum, providing numerous growth opportunities for our students.
