A trip I’d like to take
I’d love to return to the Netherlands. I led an alumni bike trip in that country when I was the alumni director for Northwestern College. I have a Dutch heritage, so it was fun to connect with the homeland of my grandparents.

My hobbies
I enjoy playing golf. I’ve made both a hole in one and a double eagle, which is rarer than a hole in one.

Favorite thing about Northwestern
Northwestern is unapologetically Christian with great academic credentials, a rare combination.
