  • OA Graduate Assistant

Masters: College Student Affairs Administration
Graduation: Spring 2021

I was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. I received my B.A in Leisure, Youth, and Human Services with certificates in Outdoor Recreation and Tourism at the University of Northern Iowa. It was there that I discovered my love for outdoor activities specifically backpacking, canoeing, and skiing. I love leading trips because it is my way of completely forgetting about the stresses of everyday life and truly enjoying myself in nature’s incredible beauty. It’s also one of my favorite ways to meet new people. I came to UWF to pursue a master’s in College Student Affairs Administration and to be one step closer to becoming a collegiate outdoor recreation professional.
