 What do I do at Iowa Western? 

I play a big part in planning and coordinating the recruiting events on and off campus as well as New Student Registration and Orientation (NSRO). You may see me at a college fair or two, but for the most part you will only see me when you come to visit us for a campus visit or NSRO.

IWCC Insider Tip: 

Check the "Campus Events" tab in your ROC account on a daily basis. There is a ton of fun (and free) stuff scheduled each school year and you don't want to miss out! BONUS: They also give out a lot of free stuff and free food at these events!

Couldn’t live without: 

Right now I don’t feel like I could live without my iPad. My calendar is synced to it, both of my email accounts show up in one convenient place, my books, Netflix, Hulu, and my guilty pleasure: Words With Friends. 

Community Service Involvement: 

I have served as the captain of a Relay for Life team for over 6 years. Relay for Life is one of my favorite events of the year. It is so cool to see so many people in our community come together for the same cause. I also volunteer for the Make A Wish foundation in Council Bluffs. I help out with events such as their Breakfast with Santa, Poker Run, Walk for Wishes and the Annual Gala. I love working with the “Wish Kids” their strength and courage is humbling and it is also one of my favorite things to do.
