Raised in: Rockford, Il
Major: Biomedical Engineering
Favorite Non-Profit: Arthritis Foundation
Why did you choose your major?
I chose BE because I wanted to work in the medical field, but I did not want to be a nurse or doctor. Instead I would be facilitating the nurses and doctors to help a patient get better by designing medical devices.
Why did you join KSM?
I wanted to join an organization where I felt like I was making a difference in the community and also at MSOE. I also wanted to join an awesome sisterhood where I knew that everyone would accept each other.
Describe your culture.
My family comes from a mostly German heritage, with a bit Norwegian thanks to my great grandmother. My favorite tradition during Christmas was sitting with my cousins eating pfeffernüsse, which is a traditional German cookie. I would love to learn more about the cultural aspects of my family and be able to share them with others
