Hometown: Des Moines, Iowa
Major: English with secondary education licensure
Field experience: An English camp in South Korea

“Traveling to Korea impacted my experience at BVU and in education in a big way. It helped me fully understand what it was like to plan independently and to balance out the time requirements in the classroom. It also opened my eyes to a new side of education of which I was completely unaware. At all of my interviews, I was asked about this experience, and I fully believe it is part of the reason I was hired. It is an experience I brag about and would never give up.”
