I graduated from Millikin University in 2019 with a B.A. in Philosophy. I worked closely with all of the philosophy faculty at Millikin and they provided me with an incredibly supportive and stimulating environment in which to become a better philosopher. Their tutelage factored greatly in giving me the confidence and philosophical rigor needed to pursue philosophy as a career. I now attend graduate school in philosophy at the University of Wisconsin, Madison as a graduate student in the PhD. Program.

While at Millikin I won the Alice Ambrose Lazerowitz award in 2018 and 2019. I was a participant of Ethics Bowl and on a team that successfully went to nationals at the Association for Professional and Practical Ethics (APPE) Conference in Baltimore in 2019. I was also a participant in MOOT Court where I was awarded the Robert Money Award For Excellence in Brief Writing. The Philosophy Department at Millikin provided me with many academic opportunities. In 2017 I presented a paper “Epistemology From Passivity” at the Truman State PHRE conference. In 2018 I presented a paper “The Paradox of Epistemic Peership” at Truman State PHRE Conference and the Illinois Philosophy Association annual conference. Additionally, I worked closely with faculty on an involved and rewarding honors project in philosophy titled “On the Kinds of Liberty”.
