Education

South O’Brien High School; Northwestern College, bachelor’s degree in business education/business administration

Family

I’m the youngest of three kids. My older brother and my mom both graduated from Northwestern.

Favorite place to visit

My mom’s kitchen is tough to beat.

Favorite thing to do on campus

In addition to working in the admissions office, I serve as an assistant coach for the Red Raiders’ defensive line. I’d say a fall Saturday on Korver Field is really tough to beat.

My college search advice

Take the time to look into several schools and keep an open mind throughout the process. Visit your top schools more than once.




In addition to our top-10 U.S. News & World Report ranking, we’ve received national recognition for excellent academics, student volunteerism, affordability, conservation and other achievements. Learn more
