Hometown: LaPorte, Indiana
College: B.A. Political Science, University of Wyoming
Favorite college memory: I will never forget my time here as a student. It was so refreshing to finally be in a place that did not define you by the clothes you wore, the clubs you were in, and where you were from. I loved being able to be a student-athlete on campus, while also being given the opportunity to be involved in student government, volunteer associations, and my church.
Hobbies outside of work: I love being involved in our community. Working with other local organizations to bring together events like the Farmer's Market or Fashion Night, reminds me of how lucky I am to live in a community where everyone's thoughts are valued and everyone contributes to the vivacity of our town, our campus, and our surroundings! I also love spending time running, reading, and attempting to garden!
Favorite place on campus: The Union! What a great place to eat, meet up with friends, go to concerts, visit the art gallery, and find out about all the events going on around you!
Advice to incoming students: Be yourself. College is a time to find out what drives you in life, what you are most passionate about, and a great place to learn something new about who you are. Take risks and challenges every day. Allow yourself to experience something new and exciting each day. College is an awesome, and unique, experience that happens only once...so make the most of it!
