Associate Director of Stewardship, Stewardship
Development Writer, Development Office

I joined Carleton in 2015 as a writer for the Every Carl for Carleton campaign; soon into this position, I also became the associate director of stewardship. My professional background includes work teaching writing classes at a small music college, editing freelance articles for an educational publication, and reporting on education and agriculture for various Minnesota newspapers. I’ve also had essays on parenting a child with autism published in Water~Stone and The Tishman Review.


At Carleton since 2015.
