Dartmouth College | Art History
Coast Guard | Information Systems Technician
My Coast Guard enlistment took me from Maine to California to the Caribbean and to many places in between. Even as an Information Systems Technician, I was a part of search and rescue missions, maritime law enforcement boardings, migrant interception, interdiction of drug-traffickers, and dozens of shipboard firefighting drills. I loved my Coast Guard experience but decided that I wanted to complete my college education at a four-year school liberal arts school. Almost by accident, I discovered Service to School and was thrilled to find that top schools were hungry for student veterans. Soon I was paired with a Service to School sponsor who was a sophomore at Dartmouth College and a Posse Scholar.
It’s a few years later and now I’m a senior at Dartmouth College and a Posse Veteran scholar myself. I’m an Art History major and a big fan of the liberal arts approach to education. In addition to enjoying my academic experience at Dartmouth, I’ve also been a part of the Dartmouth Mountain Biking Club and have served as President of the Student Veterans Association. This past winter break, I completed the Tuck Bridge Business Program, as I plan on pursuing a career in business, specifically in the cloud tech industry. As for my non-academic interests—I’m very passionate about Veteran’s education and mental/physical fitness.
