Why I Wanted to Serve on the Alumni Council:

I joined the Council to help ensure that the Grinnell community continues to expand its reach in our country and larger world. I want Grinnell students to continue to have a world class education and to use that education to responsibly solve the challenges of our world.

A Quote I Like:

"If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive."

―Audre Lorde

A Little Bit About Me:

I am passionate about helping students that are socio-economically challenged to find success in their lives. I push to help them define what success looks like for them, and then to go after it. I currently work as an administrator in a school that has faced some extreme challenges for many years. I working to create and then to open windows of success in a place that has seen untold failures.
