Why I Wanted to Serve on the Alumni Council:

Grinnell has greatly shaped the person I have become. I wanted to give back to an institution that gave so much to me. I am particularly interested in helping to reconnect alumni to current students and the college. Lastly, I find great fulfillment and joy interacting with Grinnellians and can't wait develop friendships with my fellow council members. 

A Quote I Like:

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”
—Edward Everett Hale

A Little Bit About Me:

I am an Ethics Attorney (Associate Ethics Counselor) with the Federal Government. Prior to my current position, I was a Family Law and Estate Planning attorney at a small law firm in Zionsville, Indiana. 

I am the proud mother to one adorable rat terrier (Gideon Wainwright) and many, many plants. I am an avid indoor and outdoor gardener. I love off-roading, camping, hiking, kayaking, and horseback riding. I also enjoy listening to podcasts like Sawbones, Stuff You Missed in History Class, and Ologies while on long walks with my pup. 

Other Alumni Involvement: Class Agent; Grinnell on the Front Range Volunteer; Reunion Planning Committee; GRASP Volunteer
