About me …
I was born in Moorhead, Minnesota, but was raised in Lakewood in the shadow of Green Mountain. I graduated from Lakewood High School in 2016, where I played softball, managed the girls’ basketball teams and was a member of National Honors Society.
My favorite pastimes include reading, fishing, hunting, and going on adventures. I work as a manager at the gym on my campus and at the snack bar at Applewood Golf Course. I am a very family-oriented person and I feel so fortunate to live a life full of love and support in this beautiful state.

College life...
I will be starting my second year at Minnesota State University Moorhead in the fall, where I am majoring in Elementary Inclusive Education. I will be double licensing in general elementary education, along with special education at the end of my degree.
I picked MSUM, because it is right down the street from where I was born, it is a former teacher’s college and therefore has an incredible teaching program and because the campus is so welcoming and close to family.
After college, I hope to return to Colorado and teach in the grade range of kindergarten to second grade, but will be happy to teach any grade.

Scholarship winner...
This year, I have so fortunately received the Helen Lucille Wardeberg Elementary Education Endowment and the Charles and Ellora Alliss Scholarship.
The Wardeberg Endowment was an education department scholarship that I had to complete an application, include two letters of recommendation and write a couple essays for. The Alliss Scholarship was an Upper Class Scholarship that required me to have over a certain number of credits, fill out an application and write an essay.
I am so excited to have received these, because there were only a few of both kinds of scholarships for the entire college. I plan to put the full amount of both towards my tuition to help reduce my student loan amounts.

The importance of education...
Education is so very important to me, because it is the foundation of every single thing in the world. Without the ability to read, write and calculate mathematical problems, there is barely a chance of having success in our world.
Everything that we do is centered around those three aspects of education, which is why it is so important that everyone has access to it; we need these things to communicate with each other, understand street signs, make change, etc.
Education is everything and I am so passionate about being able to instill it in the minds of so many youths.​
