Since graduating from Alma

I have spent the majority of my professional career between two advertising agencies in Detroit, Chicago, and Ann Arbor working on large and small brands. I was a Varsity volleyball coach and became a certified yoga teacher, Pilates instructor, and model. 

My Alma education

My Alma edcuation was challenging as my professors encouraged openness in my thinking and taught me how varying opinions shape our world. It prepared me for the adventure of life and gave me the confidence to pursue interests outside of what I was qualified for on paper.

My favorite place(s) on campus included

The library and Alpha Xi Delta house.

My favorite professors(s) included

Dr. Vickery and Dr. Cameron

My most vivid/best memory of my time at Alma is

My very first full day on campus for volleyball practice before the rest of the students arrived. I also have fond memories of my Pre-Term class “The Kennedy Mystique.” Narrowing this down to my best one memory is incredibly difficult. I have so many great memories!

My off-campus study experience(s) included

An internship at a radio station in Grand Rapids, MI and an internship at the Gratiot Area Chamber of Commerce in Alma.
