What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? The MSLCE program is the education gateway that will finally help me to bridge my passions and skillsets together. The pandemic revealed so powerfully that now is the time for true leadership to step up, in every capacity.

What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? I am totally honest when I say everything! But, specifically, I can’t wait for the speaker series, The Power of Pitching + Persuasion and the internship possibilities!

If you could have lunch with anyone person (living or dead) who would it be? Hoda Kotb. She spreads inspiration and hope each day through her role on morning television. I am always impacted by her words and the joy she channels daily.

Where are you from? Nixa, MO
