Favorite M+D project and why?

My favorite project at M+D is planning, promoting, and executing Finals@IMU programming. In Week 1 of each semester, I begin planning the events and activities that will be offered for students during the most stressful week of the year. From making strategic decisions about what programs to offer and collecting and analyzing data to creating promotional displays and communicating the events to students, I spend hundreds of hours on this project each semester. The best part is getting to Finals week after I poured all my time and energy into every last detail, and seeing students appreciate our efforts to make their stressful week a little better.


In my free time I enjoy playing cards and board games with my family and friends. I am also very passionate about music and love to sit down at a piano and sing and play for hours.
