About me: Education is my life! I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Drake University in 2008, and my Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction from Loyola University Chicago in 2011. Besides teaching, I love coaching basketball, writing music, playing chess, watching movies, and hiking.  

One place I recommend students visit on campus: When you come to campus, be sure to stay for lunch so you can experience the magnificent food of Bon Appétit at Hilltop Café. Nutritious, locally farmed, and ethnically diverse, there is simply no campus dining option with a richer selection. When you're finished eating, take a stroll downstairs to Zamora's Market for a warm cup of tea or coffee.

What I can do for you: I can help you discover why Cornell College is such an amazing place and one of the Colleges That Change Lives. Let me take you on a tour of our beautiful campus so you can see for yourself how excited the student body is to be here. We welcome you to visit us anytime!
