Biography

I grew up in Oswego, IL most of my life until moving to East Lansing, MI in 2020 with my return to Monmouth, IL in 2022. My career after college has consisted of working within higher education in the areas of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Residence Life and Educational Programming.

In my free time I have taken up making jewelry and you might even see me wearing some on campus. Additionally, I love to travel (especially internationally) and have visited 5 out of the 7 continents. Within the U.S., I enjoy exploring fun roadside attractions, National Parks and museums.

Monmouth College & You

Monmouth College has been a family school for many years. The experiences shared aren’t only with family but with friends on campus who have become family. Monmouth has a special way of connecting people together to create cherished memories.

Monmouth College has been able to expand my horizons and encourage me to be a global citizen with the opportunities to travel and discover new topics of study. Opportunities are everywhere and I encourage students to seek out these once in a lifetime opportunities to give you a new perspective and take you out of your comfort zone.
