You can read some of the content I have created in the past few years on my Writing Samples page. Below are a few other projects I have worked on, and experiences I’ve had!

Writing and Professional Experience

In past years, I have contributed to Drake Magazine, for which I wrote a story about the health benefits of caffeine. I have also created content for the Drake Student Senate website. For this, I wrote blog posts about Drake Student Senate’s seniors.

During my internship at Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield, I wrote articles about health and fitness for a monthly newsletter, which I cannot share.


During the January term of my junior year at Drake, I traveled to England with a Gothic Literature class. The class was very challenging, and I learned a lot about architecture, literature and history. My class toured several cemeteries, churches and other historical sites. Below is a photo of Tintern Abbey in Tintern, Monmouthshire, Wales.

Later that year, I traveled to Costa Rica, and stayed near Manuel Antonio. During this trip, I was able to learn about Costa Rican culture and brush up on what I learned in high school Spanish classes (which is not a lot).
