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

I have been at Oregon Tech since 2010. After more than seven years in real estate, I decided to make changes in my life and explore career options which would allow me to spend more time with family and improve our community. I volunteered with a local nonprofit for over a year in a variety of capacities and discovered a passion for connecting people with causes that are important to them, and helping the community. When an opportunity arose to work in the Oregon Tech Development office, I jumped at the opportunity to be part of an exceptional institution which plays such a big role in our community and the state.

What I am most passionate about professionally

Helping people see the direct impact of their gift on our students.

Why I enjoy working in Development & Alumni Relations

We meet wonderful people, work with a team of committed and passionate professionals and what we do matters to Oregon Tech, its students and the communities we call home, long after a gift has been made.
