About me: I graduated from Cornell in the spring of 2010 with degrees in art history and politics.  While a student here I participated in a number of clubs and organizations.  Most notably, I was a member of Cornell's nationally ranked mock trial team.  In my senior year, as one of the smallest schools competing, Cornell placed 6th at the national championships.  As a student, I also had the opportunity to present my senior capstone research on the evolution of an American street artist at the annual Student Symposium to Cornell students and faculty.  After graduation I worked in outreach for Jet Propulsion Laboratory before returning to Cornell as part of the admission office. 

One place I recommend students visit on campus: The Peter Paul Luce Gallery in the McWethy fine arts building was one of my favorite places while I was a student at Cornell.  Not only does the gallery host shows of work by artists from across the country, it is also the location of many of the senior gallery shows that students put together as part of the studio major.  Having a gallery space of the caliber of the Luce Gallery on Cornell's campus allows our students to be exposed to all different kinds of art in a professional setting.  

What I can do for you: As your representative at Cornell College, I am here to answer any questions you might have about the college and the kind of experiences you could have here.  Whether your questions are about how to start your application, what's it's like to go to college in Iowa after growing up on the West Coast, or what to bring on Move-In Day, I look forward to working with you every step of the way.
