Earned and Honorary Degrees

BS Sustainable Management, University of Wisconsin-Superior


I'm originally from New Jersey but I spent my summers in the Midwest and fell in love. I decided to return to this amazing part of the country and go to school. I have lived in both Wisconsin and Minnesota but now call Ashland home.

Why Northland?

The community aspect of Northland is what really drew me to the campus. Ashland and surrounding areas are very tight knit and Northland really does emulate that connection. My major was sustainable management, and working at a college that is committed to the environment and sustainability is a dream come true.

Student Involvement

I love talking to students. I previously worked at UWS and was the first person students would interact with and I LOVED it. College is such a great experience and being able to talk to students and figure out what they love to do, is my favorite.


I love the outdoors, especially fishing, kayaking, and hiking. Calligraphy is one of my passions and I create boards and signs for weddings and home decor.
