Communications and Marketing Assistant
Hometown: St. Paul (Maplewood), MN
School: I recently graduated from Luther College in Decorah, IA last May
Major: Psychology, minor in Communication Studies
Post-graduation: I am currently serving as a member of Lutheran Volunteer Corp (LVC) in Milwaukee and will be with Komen for the next year!
Why I chose Komen: When I was contemplating about what I should do after graduation, a gap year spent volunteering in a new city seemed new and exciting, thus came LVC. I’m glad I chose to pursue LVC since I get to directly work with nonprofits, like Komen, who help educate individuals about breast health and raise awareness for breast cancer in the greater Milwaukee area. I chose Komen specifically for that reason and I’m eager to continue learning more about breast health while cultivating the Milwaukee community.
Future Plans: I am contemplating going to grad school in the future (it is unclear what for right now!) and hope to do more non-profit work in a health-related field.
