I am from Muskegon, Michigan and am the first person in my family to go to college. I have lived in Ann Arbor for seven years while receiving my BA in Organizational Studies in 2014 and MA in Higher Education in 2016. I consider myself a kite flying extraordinaire and have a photojournalism background after working at the Michigan Daily throughout undergrad. My favorite thing about Michigan is the Great Lakes and I spend most of my summer searching for water near Ann Arbor. I have a pug puppy named Lincoln with his own Instagram account dedicated to documenting his adventures and experiences here as a first year UM student all while conveying important success tips for students!
