1. Tell us about your journey since graduation.
Since graduation, I've been employed at Ottawa County in the Clerk/Register of Deeds office. I interned there during my final years at GVSU and was lucky to be offered a full-time job immediately following graduation. I spent several years in an admin role but moved to a new position running the elections division in 2021. Personally, I've been traveling, spending time with family and friends, and enjoying West Michigan!
