The Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas
August 2014 — Present
Since starting at the Dole Institute, I have had the pleasure of daily combining my love of politics and my passion for planning. The mission of the Dole Institute is “to promote political and civic participation as well as civil discourse in a bi-partisan, balanced manner.” I support that mission by coordinating logistics for our guest speakers, which have included journalists from Buzzfeed, the New York Times, and NPR, among others, elected officials and political advisers, award-winning authors and historians, filmmakers, activists, scholars, and community leaders who are shaping our society. Every small detail I take care of plays into my greater passion of seeing individuals grasp hold of the big issues our country is facing and working together to find solutions.
