Nominated by: Doug Smith, Chair of the Criminal Justice Department
Involvements (sports, clubs, organizations): Tennis, Swede Government Association, Law and Order Club, Business Club, Bethany Ambassadors, Beta Tau Sigma Honorary Scholastic Society
Plans for Future: Eventually, I want to work for a federal law enforcement agency. I haven’t narrowed my career choice down, but I know I want to do something in the criminal justice field. The internships I’ve had during my college career are helping me narrow down my choices. I also want to continue my education in graduate school after I start my career.
Why did you choose to go to Bethany: It is hard to pick one specific reason! I liked the idea of the small class sizes, the opportunities students have to build relationships with professors and faculty on campus, and I wanted to play tennis in college.
What has been your favorite memory from college? It is hard to pick a favorite memory because I have so many great memories here at Bethany and I wouldn’t trade them for anything!
What drives you as a person? I have people in my life who think I won’t reach the goals I have set for myself, and I want to show them that I can and will reach my goals.
What is a special talent you possess? I memorize the popular license plate designs of all 50 states.
What are your hobbies? Playing and watching tennis, doing crafts, and watching movies.
What is something very few people know about you? People don’t know I am loud and obnoxious because I am really quiet in my classes.
