I’m a Disability and Access Advisor in the Center for Advising and Academic Support. As a new Ole, I look forward to meeting with you to discuss how accommodations can be used to facilitate equal access to higher education.
I completed my undergraduate studies in Anthropology and Biology at Beloit College, followed by an MA in Anthropology at The Ohio State University. I was trained as a biological anthropologist, bioarchaeologist, and dental anthropologist—ask me about it if you’re interested! After teaching for several years, I learned that helping students meet their academic and personal goals and creating a holistic experience in higher education is my true passion. I am so excited to join the Disability and Access team at St. Olaf and look forward to learning about you and your experiences and how we can cultivate an inclusive learning environment at St. Olaf for students with disabilities.
I’m originally from Wisconsin and spend lots of time across the border with my family at our family farm. In my downtime, I love baking, gardening, and going for walks around Northfield with my husband, son, and our dog, Olive—we have a cat, Felix, as well, but he prefers to stay home.
