Why I want to be a Maverick Firsts Advocate

was the first in my family to go to college, so I have an idea of the difficulties of that transition. Plus, as a farm kid going into the arts, I dealt with the “what are you going to do with THAT degree” mentality a lot. If you deal with the same things, maybe I can help!

Other information about me

I’m the Managing Director of the Theatre & Dance department—if you ever want to catch one of our spectacular performances, but don’t really know where to start, let me know! I’m happy to help.

I’m a board game enthusiast… what’s your favorite?

I love campfires.
