What’s on your bucket list? Working and living on every continent (besides Antarctica), visiting all 50 US states, changing the world.

What is your proudest moment? Coaching a DIII National Qualifying Women’s 4x100M Relay Team my first year out of Beloit

Why do you volunteer to be a Class Agent? You don’t stop being a Beloiter when you cross that stage in front of Middle College and receive your diploma. The time spent at Beloit is something you carry with you for the rest of your life. Serving as a Class Agent is the best way to make sure that my peers never lose touch with that wonderful place and the experiences we cultivated there.
What else do you volunteer for (at Beloit or elsewhere)? I prepare tax returns for low-income families through the IRS’ Volunteers in Tax Assistance(VITA) program, coach Track & Field at the college level and serve as a community grant reviewer for AmeriCorps programs seeking to establish partnerships with the public, private and non-profit sectors.
Why do you support Beloit financially? Beloit is a sound investment. The reciprocity of providing opportunity for so many talented, passionate and empathetic young minds is guaranteed to make the world a better place. To reference the recently adopted Statement of Culture, I am “…humbled by the knowledge that [the Beloit College] community is as gifted, flawed, and human as [me].
What is your favorite memory of Beloit? Winning the 3rd place game of the Intramural Ultimate Frisbee Championships my senior year. I scored the last point and ended up on the bottom of a massive 15 person doggy pile.
Favorite campus hangout? Commons— so many beautifully wasted hours, so many bowls of cereal, so many unforgettable memories.
What about Beloit gets you excited? The potential, always the potential.
What advice would you give to new Class Agents just starting out? As a new Class Agent myself, I’d say being open and willing to take advantage of all opportunities is the key to making an impact.
What else do you want your classmates to know about you? Whether it is related to Beloit College or not, I am always available, always accessible and always willing to help a Beloiter in need.
