Where did you go to college? What did you graduate with?
I graduated with a B.A. degree in Communication Studies from MSUM and a M.Ed. Student Affairs degree from Iowa State University

What’s your favorite part about MSUM?
The passion that is evident on this campus! Whether it’s from students, staff, or faculty you can tell that people believe in each other and their purpose for being on this campus. I’m so lucky I get to be a part of that. The fire breathing dragon is definitely a close second!

Being more creative

What’s your favorite movie?
Home Alone- no matter what time of year it is it makes me smile & laugh!

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

What’s your favorite restaurant in Fargo Moorhead?
Wow- this is a tough one. There’s so many great ones! I’ve always loved the waffle fries at Granite City so that’s definitely near the top of my list!

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Organize & clean, go for walks, sit outside, read autobiographies (I love hearing about people’s stories)

Do you have any hidden talents?
I can stand on my head for a really long time

What’s worse: laundry or dishes?
Dishes! That’s why they make dishwashers, right? 🙂

If you could instantly learn a skill or talent, what would be it be?
I’ve always wished I was more musically talented, specifically at playing piano!

What are you most excited about working at MSUM?
As an alumni, I’ve always loved this school! My journey as an undergraduate student was absolutely incredible and MSUM quickly became my home. I am so excited that now I get to be a part of that journey for prospective and incoming students.
