Background and education

I received my BAA degree in Recreation, Parks, and Leisure Services Administration from Central Michigan University in 2012, and my Master's degree in Public Administration from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Upon graduation I began working in facility operations with the Campus Recreation department at Illinois State University managing the Student Fitness Center and McCormick Hall, where I spent the next four and a half years.

In 2018 I relocated to Iowa with my family where I had the opportunity to seek out new career ventures, which led me to obtaining my Iowa real estate salesperson license.  I became licensed in January 2019 and joined the Lepic-Kroeger, REALTORS team here in Iowa City where I am still an active sales agent! 

Though I have enjoyed working in real estate, a position became available here at the University of Iowa that I could not pass up the chance to apply for.  I joined the Student Life Marketing + Design team in July 2019, melding together my creative and analytical brains as a marketing coordinator working with the Health + Wellness group of departments: Recreational Services, Student Health, Student Wellness, and University Counseling Service.
