About me: 
I am originally from the cold land of Minneapolis, Minnesota but have been in Iowa City for the past four years. I graduated in May 2021 from the University of Iowa with a B.A. in Environmental Policy and Planning on the planning track. While completing that degree, I started a U2G combined degree program and will finish an M.S. in Urban and Regional Planning this spring. Professionally, I am interested in how we can create a more sustainable society through ecologically robust and livable cities. Personally, I enjoy the outdoors in all seasons through rock climbing and cross-country skiing.
