A lifelong Wisconsinite, I’m deeply passionate about the state I call home. I was born in Madison and have lived in Waunakee (my hometown), Wausau (my adopted hometown), Menomonie, Downsville, and now Bayfield. I have a background in student affairs and student organizing, having worked at both colleges I attended.
As the creative services coordinator for Marketing Communications, I serve as a point of contact for new projects, manage current projects for the department, and fill in gaps for our small—but mighty—team. I am excited to help advance the mission of Northland College as a whole and increase the reach of campus departments.
Higher education is critical for the future of Wisconsin for so many reasons. It opens up opportunities for individual students and communities through degree and non-degree education and community outreach. Northland is unique as both an environmental liberal arts college and one of just two bachelor’s-granting institutions north of Highway 8. Access to higher education is important to me, and I was ecstatic for the opportunity to help advance the mission of an institution as unique and important to the region as Northland College.
I love hiking and the outdoors—especially in northern Wisconsin. I love coffee, live music and theater, and a good day at the lake. Geography is an interest of mine, along with a sense of place (which the Chequamegon Bay certainly has). In my spare time, I am active in queer community organizing, having served on the board of the Pride Youth Theater Alliance previously and currently serving on the board for Art & Soul Innovations (the organization behind Proud Theater).
