Monmouth College & You
I knew I was home with my first step on campus as a high school senior. Since then, Monmouth has been one of the most influential places in my life. It’s where I met my husband and formed friendships that have lasted.
After graduation, I worked on the East Coast in hospitality and traveled to Zambia, South Africa and Kenya with a nonprofit organization focused on microfinancing. This inspired me to move back to the Midwest to pursue a master’s degree in nonprofit management. Those experiences led me back to my alma mater.
Today, I work remotely from St. Louis with my husband, Richard ’07, and our rescue dog, Penny. Together as a family, we love exploring our city.
