In 2016 I was asked to be part of the St. Paul WInter Carnival Royal Family as the Royal Coordinator. Managing the Royal Family's appearances throughout the year, I met so many volunteers who had such a passion for the City of St. Paul and the Legend of the Winter Carnival.
Having a behind-the-scenes support role, I had the opportunity to help provide a similar experience that I had as Aquatennial Captain to the members of the Winter Carnival Royal Family.
Having gone to college and living in St. Paul for five years, this experience reminded me how much I enjoy St. Paul's rich history, culture and small town atmoshere. Learn more>
I had the honor of representing Minneapolis and the Aquatennial Festival as 2015 Aquatennial Captain.
Along with the Aquantennial Commodore, Queen of the Lakes and two Aquatennial Princesses, we made approximately 300 appearances across North America.
Having grown up in the Minneapolis area and having such a deep family connection to it, I have always had a strong love and pride for the City of Lakes. To have the opportunity to represent the city I love while making life-changing freidnships was an unbelieveable experience.Learn more>
