How long have you lived in St. Louis? Where were you before?
I have been in St. Louis about a year. I moved here from the suburbs of Chicago and recently graduated from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign.
How did you get involved with GenNext?
When I first moved to St Louis, I had a list of new hobbies and volunteering organizations that I wanted to explore. GenNext turned out to be a great way to meet new people while giving back to others!
What has been your favorite GenNext event?
Breaking down the Delta Gamma Holiday Tree lot was fun! I’m looking forward to building the lot up again next season.

I believe that volunteering and giving time and talent back to my local community makes the community stronger, touches lives in an important way and is a vote of confidence in the greater good.

I enjoy watching local musicians and can often be found at bars that have open mics or live performances going on. I also enjoy sand volleyball and am looking forward to the upcoming season!
What is your favorite new restaurant in St. Louis?
I am a big fan of Urban Chestnut on Manchester. Their sausage boards are to die for.
