What I love about my job: I love being able to work for my Alma Mater. Iowa Wesleyan has become home for me for the past 5 years and I love being able to share my personal stories and experiences with students. I also really enjoy how every day is different and there are so many aspects to the job. It’s a great feeling to help students in their college search and knowing that they will have the same great experience I had as a student here at IWC!
Favorite thing about IWC: The campus community as a whole and the opportunities offered to be completely immersed in the college experience. Everyone on the IWC campus, from faculty to the students, creates a close-knit and supportive community. IWC offers great opportunities to travel within the U.S. and abroad, as well as creating many opportunities for learning outside of the classroom through clubs and organizations, internships, and service learning.
What I do when I’m not at work: I love cooking and crafting, so I am often on Pinterest looking up new recipes to try and finding DIY ideas. I attend the REC center in town, participating in the different classes they offer and running in the 5ks. I also enjoy visiting my family and friends that are scattered around Iowa and other states.
Music: I like a variety of music; I mainly listen to country, pop, and rap.
TV: My favorite TV shows are Parenthood, Army Wives, How I Met Your Mother, and Law & Order SVU.
Movies: I have so many favorites it’s hard to name just a few, but I usually like romantic comedies or comedies. I also enjoy watching Halloween and Christmas movies around the holidays!
Sports: I’ve never been a huge sports fanatic, but I do like the Iowa Hawkeyes and I enjoy watching the IWC Tigers!
