As a little girl, I told my mom, “When I grow up, I want to make movies that change the world.”
From a young age I’ve been captivated by the power that video production has. As a student and professional, I have found a definite beauty in bringing stories to life in visual ways that impact an audience.
My years in college have developed my skills as a story teller, producer, editor, marketer, and much more. I’ve experienced the journalism world throughout my time with CBS News during the Democratic Debate and Iowa Caucuses, and as an intern at KARE 11 in Minneapolis. Currently working as a director for Drake Creative Services and ESPN, I am gaining experience in live sports production as well. As an intern at Meredith Corporation, I’ve enjoyed diving into a corporate experience of video production and working to deliver creative, branded content.
Although I’ve loved living in Des Moines for the past few years, I call Minnesota home. I grew up in Delano, MN, a small town about 30 miles west of the Twin Cities. Playing sports, spending time on a lake, and baking countless sweets filled most of my childhood and are all still things I love to do today.
At Drake, I’ve become extremely involved in Colleges Against Cancer. CAC is an organization partnering with American Cancer Society to bring more cancer awareness to college campuses and help end the fight against cancer. Cancer has had a huge impact on life since a young age, making the cause very close to my heart. I am now serving as CAC Co-President and am working to grow the organization and fight for our cause. Service and volunteering have been an important piece of my life from a young age. I hope to continue using my skills and experience to be leader and advocate as I move from college into a full-time professional role.
