Ben is one of the newest staff members at Wooddale. He was raised as an Iowa boy in the small town of Pella. He graduated from the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Communication.
Outside of working for Wooddale, Ben enjoys taking photos, playing frisbee golf and finding new coffee shops to try. He once ate 1,000 chicken nuggets and says if it were socially acceptable to eat chips and salsa for breakfast, he would. His goofy, well-caffeinated personality makes for a lot of fun at moments. You can find him joking around and getting to know the 7th to 9th graders around Wooddale.
