Earned and Honorary Degrees

BS Northland College
MS Higher Education, Walden University


Originally from the Janesville, Wisconsin area, I headed north to pursue my degree in business management. As a graduate of Northland, I have had the chance to explore many different internships, work-study positions as well as other opportunities that have shaped me into the person I am today. Staff and faculty of Northland College pushed me to follow my passion of higher education leadership which is something I am always expanding on.

Why Northland?

Northland College is a close knit community which allowed me to find my own passions and interests. I was able to explore who I am and what I wanted to do post graduation. The support that students receive from everyone on campus made my experience truly unique!


In my free time I love to spend time with my friends as well as my dog who was rescued from the Chequamegon Humane Society in Ashland. I enjoy learning new things whenever I can and meeting new people.
