Life before CBS…
I held a variety of positions in higher ed in both Minnesota and California, mostly working in student leadership and engagement. 

Adjusting to college life…
I entered as an undeclared major but felt like most of my friends knew exactly what they wanted to do. Through pure happenstance I discovered the Advertising track in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, started out by taking a couple of courses, and ended up really enjoying it! Having uncertainty and being open to trying new things can lead to new and unexpected outcomes! 

Favorite part of the job?
Meeting with students! I love chatting with students and learning about their passions, curiosities, and hobbies. 

Current passions, hobbies, things that give you joy?
Outside of work I enjoy discovering new (to me) places in the Twin Cities, traveling, and spending time with my two dogs, Nora and Ellie. 

Be on the lookout for...
I keep a collage of photos in my office of my dogs and some of my favorite travel destinations! While working from home, it’s likely you’ll see my dogs in the background of my Zoom screen!
