As an Oregon Tech alum and Klamath County native, Oregon Tech has always felt like the right place to be. After serving in the U.S. Army after graduating from Klamath Union High School, I utilized my Montgomery G.I. Bill® benefits to attend Oregon Tech majoring in Applied Psychology, with a minor in Human Communication and certificate in Dispute Resolution. I am finishing my first year at Oregon State University in the Leadership in Higher Education doctoral program .

Working at Oregon Tech for the last 5 years has allowed me to interact with students from taking their first steps into college, through the stress of finals week and ultimately to graduation. My current role in EPO has been a place to thrive, I enjoy meeting our newest “Owlets” and guiding them through the High School Transition and Advance Credit Program application and registration phases. In my free time, I enjoy hiking in the Oregon mountains, spending time with my family, and braving the slopes snowboarding at Mt. Shasta.
