Hometown: Sioux City, IA

Education: Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, minor in Sport Management, Morningside College, 2015. Masters in Professional School Counseling, Buena Vista University, 2019.

Recruitment area: I work with all high school seniors from Central Iowa (HWY 20 to I-80 across the entire state), as well as the Southeastern states of the U.S. (Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Puerto Rico).

What I like about my job:  I enjoy connecting with high school seniors and their families throughout their college search. I find it very rewarding helping out in anyway possible throughout a students decision process. As a Morningside graduate I have been able to experience first hand the impact Morningside College can have on an individual.

What I look for in a student: I look for students who are passionate about taking the next step in their educational journey. A students next step after high school is a pivotal moment for their future goals. If a student is looking for a campus with opportunities to help set themselves up for future success, Morningside College is the place to be!

Hobbies: I am an Assistant Wrestling Coach here on campus. Outside of being an Admissions Counselor & Coaching, I spend a ton of time staying active and hanging out with my family.
