  • Minor:  Religious Studies
  • Campus involvement: Member of the Women's Soccer team, Student Government Association (SGA), Viterbo Student Nurses Association (VSNA), Resident Hall Association executive board member, and Voyager.
  • Favorite meal in the caf: I love the food in the caf. The desserts are always delicious and Steve usually brings in some exciting new food combination to try!
  • Favorite place on campus and why: My favorite place on campus is Campus Ministry because there's always someone new to meet in there and it's a very safe and homey environment. There's also usually food and some kind of instrument to be able to play and relieve a little stress.
  • Favorite place or thing to do in La Crosse: My favorite thing to do in La Crosse is roller skate or walk downtown with friends along the river and maybe stop for some ice cream at the Pearl (I would highly recommend the adventure!).
  • Why I chose VU: I chose Viterbo because I liked how small the campus was knowing that the community feel was going to be very prevalent. The faculty was very warm and welcoming when I came on my visit and they made me feel like I was going to belong here.
  • Advice for prospective students conducting their college search: Definitely visit the campus and see if you can picture yourself there. You'll know when the school is the right fit for you.
  • Career aspirations: I am aspiring to be a nurse anesthetist.
