M.S., Portland State University
B.A., LIFE Pacific University
Hired in 2006
I love my job because I am passionate about holistic student growth and development. I am thrilled that in my position, I get to help students see themselves as people who can grow and change and who play a vital role in the mission of God in this world.
Originally from Central and Southern California, I joined the Student Life team at Multnomah University in the Fall of 2006. Prior to my position in the Student Success department, I had the privilege of working in Housing and Residence Life here at Multnomah University. Before entering the field of higher education, I worked in managing sales.
In the past number of years, I’ve had the privilege of coaching individual students through their educational process, advocating for student’s needs and presenting on student success and multicultural engagement. Additional interests of mine include reading, exploring Portland’s food culture, and spending time with my family and friends.
