Education: Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies, minor in Coaching, Buena Vista University, 2011. Masters of Science is Recreation and Sports Administration, Western Kentucky 2016

Recruitment Area: I work with high school seniors from the areas of southern Iowa, northern Nebraska, and the entire state of Missouri.

What I like about my job: I enjoy building relationships with prospective students and helping to guide them through this important stage in their life. This is the time in a student’s life when they decide who they want to be and what they want to do, and I think Morningside provides students with amazing opportunities to do so.

What I look for in a student: I look for students that are excited to take that next step in life and start developing as their own person. College is a time to build lifelong connections with professors, friends, teammates, and anyone else you may encounter so get out there and enjoy it!

Hobbies: I love spending time with my family and friends. Going to concerts, attending St. Louis Cardinals baseball games, as well as watching football on the weekends.
