Graduate Student Conference: ‘Education in Uncertain Times’, March 9, 2018

I had the honor of leading the College of Education’s annual graduate student conference alongside 5 other amazing colleagues. It was only the second largest event I’ve ever organized but the most logistically challenging. Luckily, through our months of preparation we were able to keep tabs on all the moving parts, and the day-of went without a hitch!

Harry Potter Trivia Night for the American Cancer Society, February 10, 2017

My work with ACS mostly revolves around fundraising events, the biggest being Harry Potter Trivia. Our second time with the event raised a total of $2,056. Every year I work with 3 of the most talented and kind women from the community: Jill Rannebarger, Marijane Cronk, and Chris McConkey. The majority of items sold at the event are entirely handmade (a chocolate bar of Demeter’s Kiss, anyone?). This year (2018) we’re hoping to do a HP-themed murder mystery dinner party in collaboration with a local skit group.
