What I look for in a student: I look for a student who is passionate and excited about their education. I like working with students who are looking forward to making the most of their college experience, both in and out of the classroom.
What I love about my job: I love visit programs – the excitement and energy is contagious when current students, prospective students who are just making their college decision, faculty, staff and parents are all on campus.
Cedar Rapids Hot Spot: Brewed Awakenings. The atmosphere is comfortable and the chai is delicious!
Favorite Place on Coe's Campus: The third floor of Stewart Memorial Library because it's quiet and has plenty of little hideaways where you can read or study. Plus that’s where all of the Shakespeare books are kept!
Favorite TV Show: Scrubs
Favorite childhood memory: My parents, brother and I went to Norway for a family reunion. We had 110 family members at one of the reunion dinners! It was really cool to see the old family farm, the church my ancestors helped build and to learn some new things about my family history.
