Majors: Economics, Marketing
Hometown: Kansas City, Missouri
My experiences as a Drake student include: Interning at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and UMB Financial Corporation; participating in Student Senate; joining both a business and social fraternity
Favorite Drake Memory: My most exciting memory at Drake was Welcome Weekend during my sophomore year. I was selected to be a PMAC (Peer Mentor/Academic Consultant), which assists incoming first year students before the first day of classes. I remembered coming to Drake after high school graduation with big eyes, excited to start my college career. I counted down the days during the summer until I drove up I-35 to Drake University. As a sophomore PMAC, it was great that I was able to give back to Drake and to give an exciting experience to new incoming students.
Advice for students during the college search: Ask a lot of questions when visiting Drake! We, as students, can give more unique and in-depth information and stories that aren’t available on Drake’s website or social media accounts. When you are on Drake’s campus, students can tell a lot about what it is like to attend Drake, make friends, and live in Des Moines.
If you go on tour with me, you will get the exclusive opportunity to witness my Kansas City sass (Go Royals!) and witty personality. You will either love it or endure it!
