How long I’ve been working here and what path brought me to Oregon Tech

I began working at Oregon Tech in the fall of 2013. My fundraising path began as a Phon-a-thon work study student for Linfield College. I came to Oregon Tech after graduating in hopes of continuing to fundraise at the collegiate level.

Why I enjoy working in Development & Alumni Relations

It’s the coolest job! I get to work with people who center their lives around giving, philanthropy, educational expansion and student success.

What I’m most passionate about professionally

I am passionate about helping foster relationships between students, alumni, friends, faculty and staff to aid in the cohesion and success of the university as a whole.
