Tell us a little bit about you!

I am from Bismarck, North Dakota! I came to Fargo/Moorhead to attend college at MSUM fall of 2022, and quickly fell in love with both Communications and Marketing. In my free time I love to go on walks, and hang out with friends! I have a love for building connections with others and offering vulnerability, I believe that every interaction has the power to be life changing!

What college did you attend? What was your major?

I go to Minnesota State University of Moorhead and am a Communications major with a minor in Marketing!


What’s one activity that energizes you?

Spending time in my faith or going for walks!


If you could take a 30 day, all expense paid vacation, where or how would you spend your time?

I would go on a cruise, not sure of the destination but that way I would be able to see multiple places during one trip to make the most of it!


Do you have a favorite book or movie?

I have always loved the book The Giver, and I love the movies Hairspray or Grease!



What’s your favorite part about living in the FM area? What’s your favorite hidden gem that Fargo has to offer?

I love the community and diversity that we have, downtown is so close knit and I love that one’s full day can be spent doing activities downtown! The Midwest nice shines through often when you find random connections- and to me those are so special! My favorite hidden gem is the record store, Orange Records Inc on first ave!


Tell us one random fact about yourself!

I was a choir kid growing up and have a deep appreciation for musical theatre!


Why are you excited to work for Emerging Prairie?

I am so excited to grow closer with the FM community, while making an impact that changes others outlook on life! Bringing joy to others while also inspiring them is something I find so much value in, I look forward to growing immensely with this team and community!
