I was born in California and grew up enjoying the beach, mountains, and forests my hometown had to offer. When it came time to begin college, I knew I wanted to land somewhere that still offered incredible access to the outdoors. After some searching, I found myself in Eugene, Oregon, where I received my bachelor’s degree while exploring the troves of wilderness the state has to offer. While earning my Undergraduate degree, I spent several years working in Student Services and Enrollment Management at the University of Oregon, which prompted me to accept a full-time job in Admissions with Oregon Tech. I now live in Portland, where I’m beginning to plant my roots in the PNW. In my free time, I love to rock climb, backpack, surf, hike, read, travel, and watch movies!

What’s Great About Oregon Tech

Oregon Tech offers what I believe is integral to education success: hands-on learning experiences in world-class spaces. Not only are Oregon Tech students educated in modern classrooms, but they also get to work, volunteer, and learn in phenomenal labs and research spaces that reflect the environments they’ll eventually work in. Oregon Tech provides students with a wonderful intellectual and practical education.

Why I Enjoy Working in Admissions

I love working in admissions because it allows me to connect with students who are hoping to enhance both themselves and their future. As an admissions counselor, I have the privilege of providing information, insight, and constant support through what is a life-changing process for most: accessing higher education.

Favorite Quote: “By their very nature, human beings are so capricious, so complex, so delightfully contradictory, that they deserve not only our consideration but our reconsideration— and our unwavering determination to withhold our opinion until we have engaged with them in every possible setting at every possible hour.” -Amor Towles, A Gentleman in Moscow
