I think of myself as friendly and personable, and I love working with others, whether they are children, peers, students, or elders. I enjoy anything creative, from fine art to drama productions and arts and crafts, re-furbishing antiques, sewing and anything with tacky glue. I love volleyball. I have played the sport since I was ten years old. I played at the college level here at Stout as an outside hitter and a defensive specialist and loved my time on the team. I received two spirit awards and a Blue Devil award as well as captained the team. It was a great experience and taught me a lot as a coach and teacher. Because I had a health scare last may May (a pulmonary embolism) and recurring blood clots under extenuating circumstances that led to a severe leg wound, I find everyday and every experience to be a blessing. Now I am just looking forward to the future and loving every minute of it, something my parents taught me as well.
One day I hope to be an art teacher (any grade, any school, anywhere in Wisconsin), a volleyball coach (varsity head coach!), a mother and a wife. I am enjoyed all of my time at Stout and am very eager for the world ahead of me! This is going to be a great year!
