About Me

A Montana transplant who survived four years in Eastern Standard Time at Notre Dame (Go Irish!), I graduated with an honors degree in History and a minor in journalism, meaning I can hold my own conversing with people who are alive and those who are … well … not so much.

I love travelling, and I am fresh off a six-week abroad stint in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Spain and Portugal. Someday I’ll get to Scandinavia and New Zealand, though!

Moving forward, I’ve decided my next major accomplishment in life is to reach a point where I can responsibly adopt a dog. All thoughts on the purebred vs. shelter dog debate are welcome, as well as any job offers to help me reach that goal.

I covered various sports teams, including football and men’s basketball, for The Observer (Notre Dame’s student-run and editorially independent newspaper) all four years and also excelled during a professional internship with the South Bend Tribune in spring 2017.

I spent last summer up at The Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, working as an outside services attendant at the golf course. I spent my days assisting members in all areas of their time at the course; organizing and executing club tournaments and similar events; cleaning clubs, carts and other equipment; and much more.

I also worked in the golf department at Riverside Country Club for three summers, so if it happens at a golf course, I have been a part of it. I’m respectable with clubs in my hand, too, and a 2 iron was my favorite club in my much younger days.

I jump on the ice and trade in the golf clubs for a hockey stick when the course is blanketed by snow, though. Hockey is my sport, and I cannot wait for the Colorado Avalanche to be relevant again.

Outside of the sports world, I love burying my nose in under-the-radar narratives from both antiquity and modern-day sources.
