One class at Monmouth you still think about today?
Two: Marketing Communications with James Bovinet and Interpersonal Communication with Trudi Peterson (really, any class taught by Trudi is memorable!)
Coolest thing you’ve done in your career?
My first job post-graduation was working for Alpha Tau Omega National Headquarters in Indianapolis. I traveled to 13 States and over 25 chapters across the Southwest. It was awesome to get paid to travel across some parts of the country I had never been to. The most rewarding part however was helping these chapters achieve their goals.
Favorite Monmouth tradition?
Homecoming is my favorite tradition because it ties generations of Scots together. My father, my uncle, my older brother, and myself have all graduated from Monmouth College. I hope that in the future my children attend as well, that’s why I have started to bring them to Homecoming each year! (here’s hoping to a live event in 2021!)
