Professional/Personal Biography:

I graduated from Northern in 2022 with my bachelor's degree in Socio-cultural Anthropology. I'm a very proud alumni and often find myself heading back to Marquette to go camping, hiking and skiing. Being able to represent NMU in my professional career is so exciting and I look forward to all the years ahead. 

Most Memorable College Experience:

My most memorable college experience is learning how to Cowboy Camp in the woods during the summer. Cowboy camping is essentially camping but without a tent, just you, the stars, and sometimes the northern lights. 

Favorite Marquette Activity:

My favorite Marquette activity is going skiing in the winter or attending the farmers markets in the summer. Marquette really does have it all, and I tend to have a new favorite activity every couple months! 

Best advice you received regarding college or would give someone else entering college:

My best advice I would give to someone entering college is to stay open minded and give yourself grace!  This is your journey and you have the ability to make it great! Stay curious, and don't be afraid to ask questions or ask for help. We all want to see you succeed!
