Interesting facts about me

My favorite thing about working at Northwestern
I love hearing students’ stories. Whether I’m speaking with students or reading student application essays, I discover that everyone has a story - a unique, personal reason for pursuing one of our healthcare professions. The common thread? Our students want to help people and I get to assist them in that journey. How cool is that!
Before working at Northwestern
I started in college admissions as a Student Ambassador at Minnesota State University, Mankato, where I earned a B.S. in business. At Northwestern, I’ve served in many roles within the Admissions Office - from front desk, to counseling students, to application processing and transcript review. I believe in being friendly, easy-going, and service-oriented.
My life outside Northwestern
I spent six weeks traveling France, completing a French minor, and would love to return. I enjoy spending time with family and friends and am always ready to listen and offer a helping hand. I also enjoy movies, long walks, and I am very competitive at Pictionary and wiffle ball. My favorite season is fall - the air is crisp and the colors are gorgeous. But winter is great, too - the snow in Minnesota is beautiful!
