I'm a native Kansan and second-generation Jayhawk, and I love working with KU students to help them figure out how to get the most out of their experiences and opportunities. As an undergraduate at KU, I double majored in German and Humanities and minored in Slavic Culture. Through KU's Office of Study Abroad, I did programs in Germany (Munich and Bonn), Sweden, the Czech Republic, and Russia. I then went to the University of Minnesota, where I got a Master's Degree in German Studies and a Ph.D. in German and Scandinavian Studies. While working on my dissertation, I received Fulbright, American Scandinavian, and P.E.O. awards to help fund my research years in Denmark and Sweden. In my final year of graduate study, I returned to Minnesota and started working with national fellowships advising in the Honors Program at the U of M. Being able to continue that work at my alma mater is a dream come true!
What I Do at Honors
I'm here to help students navigate the process of assessing their fit for and applying for national fellowships and scholarships. As a veteran of the process myself, I can testify to its many benefits. Whether you get the award or not, you will learn a lot about yourself, your goals, and how to get where you want to go.
