What I look for in a student: I look for students who are involved, passionate and motivated, and are willing to work hard in and out of the classroom. I love students who go out of their comfort zone to try new things in order to learn and grow.

Favorite part of your job: My favorite part of my job is getting to show families and prospective students what it’s like to be a Kohawk. I truly believe the Coe College experience is unlike any other one out there and I love working with people to show them how great Coe is!

Cedar Rapids Hot Spot: McGrath Amphitheatre. Tons of outdoor concerts and events go on there! And it's right in the middle of downtown Cedar Rapids!

Favorite place on campus: Peterson Hall and the Victory Bell

Favorite TV Show: Friends, Arrow and Pawn Stars

What is your dream job? To be an astronaut or a college football coach.
