Fun Fact About Me: I was on ESPN in college at a basketball game and the announcer commented on my curly hair!

Inspirational Quote: “Spread love wherever you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” – Mother Theresa

Favorite Book: I could read the “Harry Potter” series over and over again and I would be completely satisfied.

Hobbies/Interests: I LOVE anything that has to do with college basketball, so my T.V is on ESPN from November to March. I love making music, listening to any kind of music, and singing, so Wartburg is a great place to feed my love for music! Besides music and basketball, I love shopping, musicals, movies, being outside, and spending time with my wonderful family and friends!

What do you enjoy most about Wartburg: Not being a Wartburg graduate, the first thing I noticed when I started working here and spending time on campus was the passion of the people that work at Wartburg or go to school here, which is so inspiring! Everyone here is dedicated to being welcoming, friendly, and genuine to anyone that crosses their path. Everyone department and person supports one another and wants to see the other succeed. It is a WONDERFUL atmosphere to be around!
