Originally from Sturgis, South Dakota, I first came to Minnesota to attend Macalester College and then the University of Minnesota. I quickly became very involved in my local community, serving on the board of the Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood Association, the executive board of the University District Alliance, president of the Chateau Housing Cooperative, and staff at the Minnesota Daily.
I now work on election and advocacy campaigns for a living, fighting for progressive causes at organizations such as Working America, AFSCME, Clean Water Action, Democracy For America, and numerous candidate campaigns.
I am a passionate DFLer. I've volunteered for Democratic candidates in every election since 2002. I served as a Sanders delegate to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, and currently serve on the DFL State Central Committee and the board of the DFL Environmental Caucus.
