  • What is your favorite thing about CUC? I really enjoy being a part of the Concordia University Chicago community and how much it feels like a family. I like going to the sporting events, plays and concerts on campus, as well as the daily Chapel services. That’s a great way for me to stay connected with student life on campus and check in with Concordia students that I’ve worked with over the years.

  • Last sporting event you attended:  I LOVE baseball, and I’ve been to several St. Louis Cardinals games in the summer.
  • Random fact:  I’ve gotten to serve on several mission trips, including trips to Mexico, Guatemala, and multiple trips to New Orleans, Louisiana.
  • Favorite food?  I can always go for breakfast food—especially omelets—at a diner.

  • Favorite TV shows:  Mad Men, Seinfeld, 30 Rock, Parks & Recreation
