Why I chose WOU

The students! At previous jobs, the interns from WOU were always the most engaged and compassionate.

At WOU since



Woodworking, sewing, and just generally creating things.

Fun fact

I started flying with my dad when I was 6, and when I was 9 I learned to set dial-in beacons and then do the navigation calculations. GPS has since made those skills obsolete, but I still love looking at maps.
