Why I chose WOU

I attended WOU for my undergraduate degree and loved my experienced. So when I had the opportunity to work here I took that chance. I love that at Western you can really get to know the students that you work with.

At WOU since



Reading, tennis, camping, travel, gardening, coffee drinking

Fun fact

I was once in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!


Grants Pass, OR

Areas of responsibility

Pre-Education Advisor

I get the pleasure of advising students who are Pre-Education majors, primarily those who are Freshman and Sophomores. I work with these students to help them be empowered to take control of their learning and take advantage of all the things that WOU has to offer. I meet with the students once a term to help them plan out their classes and answer any questions they may have. Along with this, I guide these students through the process of applying to our Professional Teaching Licensure Program. 

Graduate Programs Advisor 

Another role that I have at WOU is that I also have the privilege of working as an education graduate advisor. What that means is that I help inquiring graduate students learn about the various graduate programs that WOU has to offer in the field of education. I work with students to help them choose which program is best for them, along with guiding them through the application process.
