Why did you want to join the Alumni Council?:

When I was a student at Grinnell, I was afforded several opportunities to contribute to the College―I served as a member of both Student Educational Policy Committees and as a Student Advisor, and as a co-leader of Experimental College (ExCo) and the Buddies program (now Big Brothers Big Sisters). Now, as a member of the Alumni Council, I am thrilled to have the responsibility and privilege to work with our alumni, students, staff, and faculty to help sustain our College's culture of excellence.

A Quote I Like:

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page"

-Augustine of Hippo

A Little Bit About Me:

I enjoy providing strategic advice and growing businesses across business/consumer services, consumer products, retail, and travel. My experience in these and other industries span 10+ years of consulting, corporate strategy, and investment banking; I now work in insurance, and spent the earlier part of my career in the public sector.

As a global citizen, I have lived and worked across the United States, Europe, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. I am energized by working across cultural boundaries, and am passionate about nurturing talent on my teams.

Other Alumni Involvement: GRASP Volunteer
