“My Norwegian degree gave me a direct line to my current job. After PLU, I got a job working at the Norwegian American Weekly (now the Norwegian American), and eventually took over as Editor. At this job I picked up a lot of digital design skills, which helped me get the job at Xbox!

“My English degree also continues to serve me well. I am a fiction writer and continue to actively publish my work, most recently at Poplorish and as a runner-up in Kaaterskill Basin Literary Journal’s summer fiction contest.

“I could not be happier that I chose to study Norwegian and English at PLU — it worked out very well for me!”
