Why did you join SenateI joined Senate to utilize my opportunity to lead on this campus to the best of my capabilities. I want to represent my community members that do not have a voice on their side. I am passionate about making sure that change which aligns with our Benedictine values as an institution is advocated for on their behalf. I am so excited to grow as a Bennie with a group of outstanding women this fall!

Where do you see yourself in 20 years: I hope to be married, living wherever life happens to take me working as a theology professor!
