Meet Our Staff
Career Development Coordinator, Center for Professional Pathways
I got my degree in Elementary Education and Interdisciplinary Studies (too many classes for just one degree). I grew up in Milwaukie, OR, but I live in Dallas now. When I was in college, I wanted to teach 4th grade, but have truly found that just teaching and educating inspires me; it doesn’t have to be grade specific. For fun, I like to build decks, but I’m afraid to use a saw to cut wood. I have gotten more comfortable with a circular saw this past year though. I can be found doing many things outside of the CPP depending on the season. In the spring, I’m likely at a softball field somewhere with my daughter, summer I’m hopefully in the pool or at the dunes riding, fall is more softball and yard cleanup as it starts to grow one last time for winter, and wintertime I am probably sulking in my chair inside waiting for warmer weather to get outside.
Assistant Director, Experiential Learning, Center for Professional Pathways
I am a WOU alum and got my bachelor’s degree in Business. I found my passion for helping others find new career opportunities while working in the staffing industry as a Recruiter, Business Developer and in management where I spent a total of six years. I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii but I’ve found my new home here in the Pacific Northwest. If I’m not working, you’ll (hopefully) find me surfing, playing beach volleyball, running, hiking, or doing pretty much anything active and outdoors. In my downtime, I’m usually spending time with friends and family or relaxing with a good book or podcast.
