About your Admission Counselor

Pronouns: she/her

Favorite Things About Willamette:

I love the academic hearths at Willamette. I believe some of the most engaging learning experiences in college happen outside of the classroom, and Willamette's hearths help define an actual space for that to happen.

Favorite College Memory:

My favorite professor almost always responded to our questions with another question, "Where do you think you could find the answer to that?" This was well before wi-fi and smartphones, so it was challenging not to be fed an instant answer. However, it helped instill a sense of empowerment and made me own my own learning experience. 

At the end of the day, what I learned stuck with me because I had to work for it and "believing I could" has helped me so much in life - both professionally and personally.

You Wouldn't Know It, But:

My first pet was a chicken named Roxanne.

Advice About the Admission Process:

Approach the process with a "why not?" attitude. Being willing to try something new or uncomfortable is a great way to discover new interests, make new connections, and open doors to awesome opportunities.
