Bio: Hello! I'm Rhiannon and I am from the small town of Menomonie, WI. I am an avid reader, I love to travel, and recently I have been trying my hand at flipping furniture. I graduated in May 2019 from UW-River Falls with a Communications degree, and I can't wait to see what it's like to be a Husky! I didn't start to feel comfortable on my previous campus until I became an orientation leader at the end of my first year. That experience essentially launched me into numerous other student affairs experiences that helped me find my leadership style, and my passion for student development. The connections I made with fellow students and the student affairs professionals I worked with are the highlights of my undergrad experience. I chose to go into this field because I saw how you can make such a big impact with students by supporting them, and by helping them find tools to empower themselves.
