Work directly with prospective students from the state of Illinois (I may be visiting your high school, so check the travel calendar on the Grinnell College website!). Spend many hours driving between Grinnell and Chicago. With our campus events and visits team, help organize our many on-campus programs including Discover Grinnell and our admitted student programs. Spend time at Starbucks whenever possible. Read about new Apple products.
Grew up in the middle of Michigan and attended a small, private liberal arts college similar to Grinnell for my undergraduate degree. Majored in theatre. Moved to Chicago. Earned my M.Ed. in higher education. Worked in residence life, admission and assessment while in grad school. Moved to Grinnell!
Technology (yes, I'm a tech geek). (I'm a member of a national music fraternity). Travel (random trips to visit friends and family are a favorite hobby and Paris is next on my list of places to visit). Bright colors (particularly fluorescent pink!). All types of fast food. Spreadsheets and coffee and a whole afternoon spent with data.
