My Skills

As an IWM major I study website design, social media management, and internet marketing. I have have a passion for social justice, with an emphasis in LGBTQ social justice issues.

I have been a S.A.F.E. trainer since 2015, and been part of the SAFE Training student panels since 2012. From January 2015 – May 2015 I was an intern at the UW Oshkosh LGBTQ Resource Center, specializing in the library and multimedia resources in the library. Before and after being an intern, I have been very active within the UW Oshkosh LGBTQ Resource Center and LGBTQ campus community through volunteering, serving on panels, being apart of multiple committees, and attending different educational events.

I have also been active within the campus organization Rainbow Alliance for HOPE, and served as the co-programmer for nearly a year.
