Born on September 7… parents are Steve and Susan… chose Goshen because of "the welcoming students and advisors, friendly and helpful teachers, and overall small school feel of Goshen as well as Merry Lea campus all caught my attention when I came for visits. In the end I chose Goshen because of its religious values, commitment to the environment and strong study abroad program"… admires my dad because "He is the most patient, understanding, loving father I could ask for, and he is the reason I have such a passion for nature and environmental issues. He is extremely passionate about his job and does something he loves - I want that!" and Rachel Carson because "She was such a leader for the environmental movement and knew exactly how to address issues so people would listen. She is one of the most passionate, admirable women leaders I've ever learned about."… little known fact is "I can twist my arm all the way around in a circle because I have double jointed elbows!"
