Home state

I was born in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, but I grew up in the Twin Cities of Minnesota.

My favorite thing about Bethel University

Bethel is motivated by the Christian faith. I am inspired daily because of the community of faith at Bethel. The work culture and energy is supportive, encouraging, and fun!

My favorite things about the Twin Cities and life

I love the four seasons in the Twin Cities. I’m all about fun! Fall: I enjoy apple picking and participating in the Twin Cities Festival with my family. The Fall colors of nature is beautiful. Winter: I can’t celebrate Christmas without snow! I enjoy snow tubing and ice skating outside. Spring: With the snow melting and seeing people active outside brings a good energy in the Twin Cities. This is when I get out to the lakes and go for a jog. Summer: I never miss out on MN State Fair! I love catching movies at the Drive-in, camping, and playing competitive sports with friends.

My favorite thing about being a Student Success Advisor

I get the opportunity to tag along with students on their academic path. I love building relationships with students. I also get to support and encourage students overcome obstacles. It is uplifting to see students reach their educational and professional goals.  

Before working at Bethel

Before working at Bethel, I was with Minneapolis Public Schools with Community Education Department. I was the Community Education Coordinator at Jefferson Community School serving youth, adults, and seniors programs.
