My name is Annie Butler and my pronouns of reference are she/her/hers. I am so excited to be the advisor for Herky CARES and am grateful for the work this team does to make a difference on campus! A little about me… I earned my bachelor’s degree in mathematics and master’s degree in higher education. I grew up near Clermont, Iowa. My favorite thing about working at the University of Iowa is helping students reach their goals and ensuring they feel like a part of our Hawkeye family. To me, social justice means all people are able to be their unique and authentic selves while having the opportunity to create the life they dream. Breaking down the systems and structures that create barriers for this vision is important work and I am grateful that Herky CARES aims to do this!
