Gracie joined the First Witness team as an intern in January. She is currently receiving her bachelor’s degrees from the University of Minnesota-Duluth in Biochemistry and Criminology. During her undergraduate career, she served on the Sexual Misconduct Hearing Commitee at UMD, tutored math and chemistry courses, and was an assistant teacher for the criminology department. Throughout her time at UMD Gracie has focused on coursework in Psychopathy and Crime, Understanding Violence, Criminal Forensic Psychology, and Sociology of Gender.
She moved from Wisconsin to Duluth in 2020 for college, and quickly fell in love with the city. After her graduation in May she plans to stay in Duluth and continue her work with children. She has worked at afterschool programs in the area for two years and spends her summers outside at camp, teaching kids how to paddle, climb, bike, and hike.
In her free time, she enjoys hiking the Superior Hiking Trail, paddling up the North Shore, watching long movies, and trying new coffee shops.
