What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I have a crush on Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.

My favorite thing about working in Admissions 

Helping students that are excited about the opportunities in front of them make their college dream a reality.

What makes Iowa such a great place? 

Iowa is a great place to learn and grow. There are tons of options both in and outside the classroom. Iowa City is diverse and culturally rich. It’s a cosmopolitan community with such positive energy. There’s something for everyone, and of course we have the Hawkeyes!
