Why Willamette?

I love working at Willamette because of the inclusive community and collaborative environment. The campus is small enough to feel like you run into friends all over campus, and big enough to have lots of fun events and activities to explore.

Favorite High School or College Class or Subject?

My favorite subjects in college were History and Linguistics. I primarily focused on the history of the Middle East and I studied the Arabic language. I was able to participate in an immersive Arabic and local dialect program in Tunisia through the Critical Language Scholarship.

Something You Learned in College You Still Use?

My focus on a liberal arts education taught me how to think critically from a variety of lenses and perspectives.

Memorable/Favorite High School or College Co- Curricular Activity

I really enjoyed participating in the Figaro club, where students attended monthly opera performances at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in Denver. I had never been to an opera prior to joining this club, and looked forward to it monthly!

Proudest Accomplishment to Date

This last year I was awarded the Association of Regional Representatives of Oregon and Washington (ARROW) Distinguished Member Award, for my service to counselors in the region.

Favorite Book

The Historian, Elizabeth Kostova

I try to read it once a year.
