I’m a Senior in Software Engineering with a concentration in Application Enterprises. I’m born and raised in Bismarck, North Dakota. During my, very limited, free time I love to read, hike and camp – I’m also obsessed with Harry Potter and dogs. Both are addictions. I joined Senate because a friend of mine told me about it during my freshman year. This is my 2 ½ year on Senate and I love being a member because I’ve seen what a difference we can make and how we can impact the other students on campus, often without them even realizing it.
