What I love about my territory: I have family in both St. Louis and Texas, so I love being able to see them, in addition to meeting with Grinnell prospects. I also love to eat my way through both regions. I can’t get enough gooey butter cake in St. Louis and breakfast tacos in Texas!

What I love about Grinnell: I love the passion, sincerity, and commitment to social justice across the entire community. I have made so many meaningful and lasting connections with Grinnell faculty, staff, and students, which I think can only happen in a small community where people truly care about one another. I also love Dari Barn, the local ice cream spot.

Hobbies/activities: I enjoy running, swimming, biking, and cooking.

Advice about searching for schools: Be open-minded. The schools that you have “heard of” are not necessarily the best fit for your educational and personal goals.

Advice about applying to schools: Check your email. We send important application updates via email, so please pay attention!
