About Me:

I am currently in the School of Engineering and will be graduating in 2021. I moved around a lot as a kid and eventually ended up at Lansing High (KS) my senior year, and was awarded a 4-year Army ROTC scholarship. Since coming to KU, I have fallen in love with the School of Engineering and Jayhawk Battalion. The strong sense of community, great new friendships, and dedication to molding strong cadets in our program has made my time at KU incredible. I have gained valuable skills and confidence already, and am excited to see where the next few years as a cadet take me.
