Hello! This is my third year at KU and my second year in Student Senate. I'm studying accounting with a minor in business analytics, and hoping to make a career in auditing. I've been an officer for the Undergraduate Business Council and Honors Community Advocates, a volunteer for the Campus Cupboard, and a co-founder of KU Gaymers, which provides recreation for queer and trans students on campus. I grew up in rural Kansas and like to visit home from time to time to see my family, golden retrievers, and rabbit. Previously in Senate, I assisted deliberations in the Finance Council and wrote legislation to improve access to funding. I'm very excited to provide support to the DEI and Educational Opportunity Funds this year. If you have any questions about the Senate funding process, let me know and I'll be happy to help.
