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

I started working at Oregon Tech the week of Commencement 2016. My family and I recently relocated to Klamath Falls from North Dakota. I had been home raising my family for four years and after we got settled I began pursuing professional opportunities.

What I am most passionate about professionally

I’m most passionate professionally about helping others reach their goals. I find it very fulfilling that I can run a report, analyze data, and compile information that helps other members of the team reach their goals.

Why I enjoy working in Development & Alumni Relations

I enjoy working in Development & Alumni Relations because I believe in the Foundation's mission to further educational, cultural, charitable and service functions of Oregon Tech. Education is the cornerstone of a great community and working in Development I get to see how the dollars raised helps students meet their educational goals.
