Territory:Alabama, California, Georgia, Hawaii,  North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Alma Mater: Cottey College '93, Oregon State University '95

Major: Science/ Environmental Biology

Campus Involvement: Phi Theta Kappa. I spent much of my life at Cottey in the chemistry labs, travelled to multiple science conferences with Cottey students and faculty, as well as Phi Theta Kappa conferences. I took advantage of pretty much ALL the Cottey road trip opportunities and on-campus events/performances.

Hometown before Nevada, MO: San Marcos, CA

Favorite memory at Cottey: I was selected as one of four Cottey science students to attend the first EVER "Women in Mathematics, Science and Engineering Conference", held in Washington, D.C. It was an incredible experience, and very instrumental in developing my love for travel and my dedication to helping women further their education.

Favorite place on Cottey Campus: Raney Dining Room!

Favorite place in Nevada, MO: My home.

Favorite restaurant in Nevada, MO:
Jenny's California cafe

Favorite movie: It's a toss up between Princess Bride, and the original Star Wars trilogy (I'm counting that as one :-), though I'd probably choose Empire Strikes Back if pressed).

Favorite food:
Manapua (it's Hawaiian)
