Biography

High school Attended: Mounds Park Academy

Education: BA Biology, St. Olaf College
MA Education: Natural Science and Environmental Education, Hamline University

Favorite college activities: Playing trumpet in band and jazz ensemble, cello in cello studio, orchestra, chamber music, fencing sabre against olympic level athletes, playing intramural badminton, and being elected biology club co-president.

Favorite Local Restaurant: I love getting a gyro at Black Sea. Their unlimited tzatziki sauce is on point. I also enjoy a steaming bowl of Pho and a Banh Mi from iPho by Saigon on cold winter days.

Why I love Hamline: Professors really do know your name. I answered a call for trumpet players while attending the School of Education at Hamline and before I knew it, I was recruited to play in the jazz ensemble, concert band, and orchestra. I played alongside professors and continue to play in the orchestra today as an alumnae musician. The relationships are lifelong, life-changing, and incredibly meaningful.
