Why did you choose Oregon Tech?

I chose Oregon Tech because it was the perfect place for me to receive a great education with also the ability to be a part of the Track and Field team. The small class sizes and personable professors make OIT very unique and special.

What do you like most about your program?

I love that I’m surrounded by professors and faculty that are very knowledgeable and supportive of me as a student, athlete, and entrepreneur.

What are you passionate about changing within this particular field and why?

I love small business and have a passion to change the way people think about Klamath Falls and Southern Oregon. I see so many people come here to get there degree, complain about Klamath, then leave after graduation. I want to change this trend and use small business as a pathway to making the Klamath experience a more enjoyable experience.

What would be your dream job?

I am already living my dream job by owning my own business, Bulletproof Brewhouse. However, I would love to own a business that required me to travel the country and world. 

What have been some of your favorite classes and why?

One of my favorite and most difficult was class was entrepreneurship. This class taught me so much about business as we were required to write a business plan for a fictional business. Not only did this class teach me a lot, but it was huge factor to the success of the opening of Bulletproof Brewhouse.

Is there anything more that you would like to share with future students about campus, what you wish you knew before attending Oregon Tech or anything else?

I would tell any perspective student looking at Oregon Tech to not listen to what people have to say about Klamath Falls or Oregon Tech. I would push them to make their own opinions and to be the change. Don’t get caught up living the status quo; stand up, dream big, and be the change.
