Points of Pride
The campus is beautiful! Many things in the community are accessible via light rail, bus, biking or walking. It's been great engaging with students and professional staff members on issues of social justice, diversity, and equity. If you're looking to grow, this is the place for you. As a professional, it's been great being involved with the Minnesota College Professionals Association (MCPA). I have served as a board member as well as being on a committee for our annual fall conference.
My personal philosophy: Chicago style pizza is the best pizza.
Life Outside the U
Outside of my role as RD, I'm usually annoying my partner, Alex. If I'm not doing that, I'm either goofing around with my dog, Zeus, or taking care of my 80+ plants. I also love going to concerts, excessively watching Netflix, crafting, drinking coffee, and eating pizza. I play a mean game of Uno and love exploring the city and metro area.
I oversee hall operations for 17th Ave. Residence Hall and Keeler Apartments. This includes: the 24 hour information desk, occupancy, assignments, room switches, building access, mail, tours, contract releases, and much more. In addition, I supervise the Office Assistants and Hospitality Specialists, run the summer conferences, and summer school housing.
