Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I grew up and graduated high school in Hudson, Wisconsin, a suburb of Minneapolis/St. Paul Minnesota. I love learning and discussing my thoughts with my friends, family, and classmates. While I am more naturally introverted than extroverted and love curling up with my cat, a book, and a cup of coffee, I also love meeting new people and pushing myself to create meaningful, long-lasting connections with others. This love of relationship building means group projects and collaborative experiences inspire me. I enjoy the opportunity to learn from others while also contributing my own ideas.
