Hometown: Fargo, ND

Degree Program(s): Communication, PhD

Year in School: 2nd year

Future Plans: After completing a Ph.D. in Communication, I see myself working as an advocate, researcher, and educator within the field of Environmental Communication. I hope to continue placing tenets of sustainability science at the center of my research while also maintaining teaching as central, rather than ancillary, in any position I pursue.

Hobbies/Fun Fact: 

Where did you complete your undergraduate studies? In 2015 I graduated magna cum laude from Northern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations and minors in English (writing) and Environmental Sustainability.

Are you also involved in other clubs/organizations? If so, which one(s)? I am an active member in the Communication and Journalism Graduate Student Association (GSA).

Why did you choose to be a part of the GSG?

What is one goal you have for the GSG? I hope to to help create and be a part of facilitated discussions with fellow graduate students about university decisions that impact our livelihoods.
