About Me.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

An alumni of Grand Valley State University, I am now employed as a Registered Nurse on the progressive neuroscience floor at Spectrum Health Grand Rapids . With my roots in the small Michigan town of Frankenmuth, over time I’ve come to call Grand Rapids
my home. Being active on campus and involved in the community is a large
part of who I am.

As a Grand Valley student I served as president of Omicron Delta Kappa
(ODK); a national leadership honor society; president and founder of the Crohn’s
and Colitis Student Initiative; a board member of the Service and Advocacy
funding board; and an employee of Grand Valley’s Admissions
Office. I also served on the Student Engagement Committee
in Grand Valley’s Development office to develop a new program that aims to  educate students on philanthropy and also the cost of higher education. I was also a two year fellow in the Cook Leadership Academy in the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies.

In the community, I serve as the Grand Rapids event chair for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), and in May 2011 I organized the Take
Steps Grand Rapids Walk
, one of CCFA’s signature events.  I also had the pleasure to attend ODK’s signature leadership program, “Campus Leaders Today, Community Leaders Tomorrow” conference. I am looking forward to further developing my leadership skills and becoming a life long learner.
