Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, Jesse is excited to join the Gustavus Admission team after graduating from Valparaiso University in Indiana where she studied English, Spanish, and Political Science. While at Valpo Jesse was active in student government and faith life as well as working as a student aide and tour guide in the Admission office. 

As a humanities student at a liberal arts college, she has seen firsthand the impact that the liberal arts combined with a close-knit community has on a student’s personal and academic growth. Jesse is grateful for the opportunity to work with future Gusties and guide them through the college admission process and watch them grow in this incredible community. 

In her free time Jesse enjoys getting outside and exploring her new home. She is also a die-hard Wisconsin sports fan who loves football season. She can’t start her morning without a strong cup of coffee and loves spending time reading in coffee shops.
