Why I chose WOU

WOU is a close-knit environment with a dedicated group of people working hard towards positive change for their students and for Oregon. All I want in a workplace is the freedom to work hard for what I believe is good and right. WOU is that place and so much more. I am encouraged and welcomed to contribute positively, passionately, and openly to my field and the academic community at large. Proud to be a Wolf!

At WOU since



Sewing, biking, learning new things (any things!), knitting, getting out with my family and doggos.

Fun fact

I am "recognized" every where I go by people I have never met. I must have "one of those faces," or so people tell me! To date, I have seen or met THREE other humans in the world who look eerily like me.
