I attended high school at Valley Community School District in northeastern Iowa. I graduated with a class of 50 students, most of whom I met on my first day of preschool. Throughout high school, I was involved in many different activities.
Athletics were a very important part of my high school career. I was a varsity athlete in cross country, basketball, track and field, and softball. My biggest accomplishment through my athletic career was winning the 1A State Cross Country Team Championship my sophomore year.
I also was active in many student organizations. I really enjoyed being a student council representative and helping plan events such as Homecoming and our annual blood drive. I was also involved with our volunteer group, Peer Helpers and Students Okay without Drugs or Alcohol.
I am currently a junior at Iowa State University. I am working towards my undergraduate degree in mathematics as well as attaining a certificate in community leadership and public service. I plan to graduate next May. I am also planning on attend graduate school to study higher education and student affairs.
Along with my course load, I enjoy being active as a student leader on campus. I am currently the Vice President of the Student Alumni Leadership Council and the VEISHEA 2010 Parade Co-Chair. I am also a peer mentor for the Program for Women in Science and Engineering and a Conference Manager for Department of Residence Conference Services.
