I graduated from GVSU in 2008 with a B.A. in International Relations and a double minor in International Business and Spanish. Grand Valley provided me with many professional development opportunities, such as an international trade internship at the U.S. Department of Commerce Grand Rapids Export Assistance Center, a research assistantship, and a study abroad experience in Mexico. Upon graduating, I moved to DC to work as a membership coordinator at the Retail Industry Leaders Association.

I am currently the director of meetings and events for the American Political Science Association. This includes managing the logistics of the association’s Annual Meeting, which brings together political scientists to present and discuss their research. I also organize the Teaching & Learning Conference, which focuses on political science education.
