While completing my English major, I felt like I was not a good enough critical thinker and writer compared to my peers, but when I took a class with professor Kurt Bullock, he made me recognize that I actually excel in these areas.
My favorite memory at GVSU is my oldest daughter being able to see me walk across the stage at graduation is one of my favorite Grand Valley memories.
My favorite Grand Valley memories were made by being a part of student organizations, especially the Humane Society of Grand Valley and the Student Environmental Coalition.
I visited Seattle with others in my graduate program to attend a conference, which became one of my favorite Grand Valley memories.
Some of my favorite memories at GVSU were within my integrated science classes. I made some lifelong friends, being crammed together in the same classes for two years, and we had many good times together in Padnos.
I'm a bit of a nerd, so my favorite memories were always in the classrooms. Particularly in my capstone coursework where we would have great conversations and debate about big issues.
