What I look for in a student:

I look for students who strive to get the most out of their college experience. I like a student who wants to be involved, whether that be through joining clubs, participating in athletics or studying abroad. I look for students who are excited about the incredible transition from high school to college and show ambition and drive to succeed while also having the time of their lives.

Favorite part of my job:

I definitely enjoy having the opportunity to be a part of such an important and exciting aspect of a student's life. I love being able to aid in any way possible in the college search process for the student and their family. Choosing what college to attend is a very exciting transition in a young student's life and I want to help make that process as smooth as possible!

A little about myself:

I am a huge sports fan! I root for the Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Cubs. I also enjoy staying active by running and working out as much as possible.

My interests:

Sports, comedy, live music, running, working out and spending time with my family.

Favorite music:

I appreciate all genres of music, but I have to say Usher, John Legend and Eric Clapton are at the top of my list of artists.

Favorite TV shows:

Mike and Mike in the Morning, Dan Patrick Show, Pawn Stars, American Pickers and any athletic event on television.

Favorite movies:

Braveheart, Gangs of New York and Rudy

Favorite Cedar Rapids hot spot:

I enjoy attending live music or comedy events anywhere in Cedar Rapids and cheering on our semi-professional baseball team, the Cedar Rapids Kernels.
