If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Toss up between hot wings and tacos. I tried long and hard to choose between the two but was unable.
What is a weird fact about yourself? I previously worked in a biological research position working with spiders. Fun fact #2 I am not a fan of spiders.
Why did you join TBE Exec?

I joined the Big Event because I wanted to have a bigger impact on an event that means so much to me. I loved volunteering my first two years here at UNL and and had a great time on Ops staff, but I felt like I could do more. Being on TBE exec gives me the unique opportunity to play a more pivotal role in the organization and implementation of this great event.

Why are you passionate about TBE?

I am passionate about the Big Event because I have seen first hand the impact it can have on the community. Working on Ops staff last year, I was given the opportunity to help out some of citizens in our local Lincoln community. Nothing was more gratifying to me than hearing from them how much they look forward to the Big Event and how much it means to them. Giving back to the community and hearing from those we impact each year is what drives my passion.
