Since graduating from Alma
I have been building my career in a number of ways. For the past three years, I have been teaching middle school English at a Detroit charter school as a Teach for America corps member. I also earned a Master of Arts in Educational Studies at the University of Michigan (with the support of the History Department’s Smith Scholarship!) during this time. I spent this past summer in Washington, D.C. serving as a Teacher Fellow at the Data Quality Campaign. Earlier this year, I joined the board of Young Nonprofit Professionals Network - Detroit and look forward to getting involved in the Lansing community as well.
My Alma education
…prepared me to problem solve and persevere through “real-world” career challenges.
My favorite professors(s) included
…Dr. Lorenz, Dr. Olbertson, Dr. Hulme, and Dr. Bu.
My most vivid/best memory of my time at Alma is
…all of my time spent on the AC Model UN team.
My off-campus study experience(s) included
…both international and domestic opportunities. I completed two P-Global Fellowships: serving at a foster home for neglected youth in Costa Rica as well as teaching English in rural Nepal. I also traveled across Europe in Dr. Lorenz’s Law of War, Peace, and Human Rights spring-term course. With the support of the History Department’s Yehle Award, I completed an internship at the Michigan Department of Education, and I am excited to be back there full-time.
