Where did you go for undergrad and what did you major in?

I went to Berea College in Kentucky and majored in Spanish and Sociology. #KentuckyProud

Why did you choose to attend DURP at UIUC?

I chose to attend UIUC because I felt that the DURP program was thinking outside of the box. Too often we focus urban planning narrowly on facilitating growth and managing the outcomes. I appreciated that the faculty at UIUC are comprehensive and have a strong commitment to considering not only the social and environmental implications, but mitigation. As students, we are being challenged to consider our place and influence as planners in addition to learning the skills which I believe will help us as practitioners as the field evolves.

What are your career ambitions?

I'm interested in working in municipal government for community and economic development, or in the private sector as a planning consultant. My focus throughout my time at UIUC has been on understanding the implications of traditional planning practice and finessing the way forward, toward a more integrated, socially empowered and sustainable future.
