What activities/organizations are you involved in?

I am on the UW-Parkside volleyball team, a member of the Parkside American Marketing Association (PAMA), and was an orientation leader this past summer.

Have you done an internship? Where?

I am currently a one of the CBEC interns here at UW-Parkside

Did you work a summer job? Where?

This past summer I worked as a team lead at Menchies Frozen Yogurt in West Bend and was a Ranger Orientation Advising and Registration Leader.

Best Place to Study

My favorite place to study is the lounge area in the University Apartments. Not a lot of people use it so it's usually nice and quiet and there is plenty of room.

Best place to eat in Kenosha or Racine?

My favorite place is Noodles and Company.

Favorite activity/place off-campus:

Petrifying springs park. It is right down the road and so beautiful. If you have the chance you should go for a walk, hike, or bike ride through it!

Something interesting about me:

My grandfather owns a sheep farm and I showed sheep in 4-H from age 8-18.

Best class so far:

Speech 105. Coming into college I dreaded speaking in front of large groups of people. However, with a bit of practice and the help of the professor I was able to improve quite a bit and was even chosen to represent my class on speech night.

Favorite Professor:

Donald Gillespie, he was always so nice and had so much knowledge and experience he would share with his classes.

Best thing about being a student at UW-P:

I think the best thing about being a student at UW-Parkside is the sense of community between people. It's hard to walk through the hallways without seeing a familiar face.

Why did you pick UW-Parkside?

The first thing that drew me to Parkside was volleyball. Then, once I came here on a visit, I saw all of the great things the school had to offer and I knew I could make this my second home. I especially liked the small class sizes, the pretty campus, and the location.

Best advice for getting the most out of college:

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Professors want to help you, you just have to give them the opportunity to. If you don't understand something in class or even want some advice on a project, go to during their office hours and talk to them about it. The other piece of advice that I would always share with my groups at Orientation was to get involved. UW-Parkside offers you so many opportunities. Do this whether it be volunteering, interning at a local company, or helping you make connections with your peers at intramurals. This will in turn make sure you have a better college experience and help prepare you for the rest of your life.
