A little about me

I grew up in Lakeville, MN where I attended Lakeville North High School. During high school I and played football, ran track & field, and worked at Caribou Coffee. While at St. Thomas I studied Marketing and also continued my track career, competing in the Heptathlon, Decathlon, and Javelin. Along with that I worked three jobs on campus, had a summer internship, and volunteered at a senior living community. In my free time I love to travel, go hiking, play pickup basketball, and spend time with my friends and family.

Why I chose St. Thomas

When I was in 7th grade I came to St. Thomas to watch a football game and instantly fell in love with the campus. Then a few years later, when I was starting my college search I decided that I wanted to go to a smaller school where I could continue running track, had a good business program and wasn’t too far from home. St. Thomas was all of these things and more. So I visited campus again and it was even better than when I had originally remembered. As soon as I stepped on to campus, felt the energy and the atmosphere, I knew that I had found the school for me.

A word of advice when choosing a college

Ask questions! It’s been said many times before, but there is no such thing as a dumb question especially if it’s going to help in your college decision. When visiting schools, taking tours, and doing research, a lot of information gets thrown at you and it can be overwhelming. Take the time to ask questions if you have them and in the end choose the school that feels right for you!
