Residing In: Des Moines, IA USA
Occupation: Special Assistant - Dept. of Cultural Affairs
Yes! Attending Reunion

I work as a Special Assistant at the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs. In my role there, I work as the "utility player" at the State Historical Museum. I do what needs to be done and have a great time with my co-workers. Also, I am the Program Coordinator for Iowa Great Places, a community visioning and development program.

In August, 2011, I completed graduate school and earned my Master of Arts in Teaching.

I attended Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa. In 2007 I graduated Magna Cum Laude with BAs in Politics, History and International Business.

Since college commencement, I just hang out and do what is fun.

From May-October 2007, I volunteered with the AmeriCorps working in conjunction with the Iowa DNR as the Naturalist at Yellow River State Forest and Pikes Peak State Park. I also bartended at a sweet little place in Clayton, Iowa called Bill's Boat Landing. It's right on the Mississippi at UMR 624.7 and is definetly worth checking out - especially if you like Bloody Marys.

Then I worked as a farmhand in Colorado for a month.

Most currently, I have been working in the Iowa General Assembly as a Legislative Aide for State Representative Dawn Pettengill (R-Mount Auburn).

In May, I'll be moving to West Branch, Iowa where I've accepted a job as a Park Ranger with the National Park Service. I'll be working at the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site.

School Story:

Jazz I went to the Iowa Jazz Championships in 2000 and it was a fabulous experience. The best part was taking the stage and seeing classmates holding up signs encouraging us, just as if it were a big sporting event! It was great and I was so lucky to be the only freshman in the band that year.
