Hometown: Grinnell, Iowa
Degree: B.A. (University of Iowa)
Undergraduate major: Psychology
What I love about my territory: I love working with all of the students, families, and counselors in my territory. I have been responsible for this territory for quite a while, so these places are like second homes to me. I have my favorite places to stay, eat, and shop. It is a bonus that all of the places I travel to have very different landscapes than Iowa (the desert, the mountains, and the ocean).
What I love about Grinnell: The community — hands down. I love the niceness and friendliness of it. You don’t have to know someone to say “Hi” or smile at them.
Hobbies/activities: I love to travel and explore new places. I like shopping for unique gifts for friends and family. Recently, I’ve been spending a lot of time gardening.
