Multicultural Program Specialist

Hometown: Chicago, Illinois

Degree: B.A. (Grinnell College)

Undergraduate major: Anthropology

What I love about my territory: Although my colleague Christian Morris is the admission counselor for Chicago, I live, work, and primarily focus on Chicago recruitment initiatives. Chicago is a city of many worlds, with great food in each of them, be it Jibaritos in Humboldt Park or vegetarian soul food in Grand Crossing. I live for the great food in each part of the city!

What I love about Grinnell: The roads leading up to Grinnell College have the most beautiful rolling prairie hills and night sky I have ever seen. Once you experience it, it's hard not to fall in love with it.

Hobbies/activities: I enjoy doing yoga and dancing salsa, merengue, and bachata in my kitchen.

Advice about searching for schools: Four years is a long time. Search for schools that will provide you a safe space to academically and emotionally grow.

Advice about applying to schools: Go the extra mile to express your interest in your top-choice schools. Attend that info session; set up that interview!
