Billings Clinic Foundation

Philanthropic Advisor - Stewardship, Community Outreach & Events

I was born and raised in Montana and I enjoy hiking, hunting, fishing, and camping under the Big Sky. I attended high school in Missoula, MT where I was among the first group of students to attend the Big Sky High School Health Science Academy. In this program, I completed several hours of job shadow experience and earned my Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification. I graduated with Honors in 2016 and I was a recipient of the Eagle Medallion Award for Leadership, Service & Academic Excellence.
I went on to pursue my degree in Political Science at Carroll College in 2016 after discovering my passion for civil service and social justice. At Carroll, I was involved in many extracurricular activities, my favorite was being our school mascot, ‘Halo the St. Bernard,’ for basketball season. I also served in two elected positions: Student Body President of the Associated Students of Carroll College; and Fundraising Chair of a student-led organization called Engineers Without Borders (EWB). As the Fundraising Chair of EWB, I led two successful annual fundraising campaigns which funded annual student and community service projects in Uganda, Guatemala, and Mexico. In January of 2019, I was able to travel with a group of students and engineers to our project in Guatemala to complete construction at a local elementary school.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Carroll College in December of 2019, earning my B.A. in Political Science and The Michael Murphy Award for Outstanding Collegiate Citizenship. I am excited to be starting my career with the Billings Clinic Hospital Foundation this July because I am passionate about helping those most in need in my community – and beyond.
