Hometown: Portland, Oregon. In fact, I grew up about five minutes from Lewis & Clark, and have subsequently lived on both coasts and abroad. Currently, I call New York City home, so come say hello in Brooklyn!
Favorite spot on campus: I have always loved the bridge crossing the ravine that connects the academic side of campus to the residential side. A simple path suspended beneath a canopy of trees, surround by the cleanest air I have ever inhaled- especially nice after returning to campus from New York!
Little-known fact about me: In fifth grade, I was in an English language training video series called The Black Hand Gang. I played the part of Wheelie who rode a bike, wore hyper-color t-shirts and said words like “Cowabunga!”
Piece of advice for students in the college search process: Have fun! Yes, the process can be daunting, but only you know what’s best for you. Also, when visiting a campus like Lewis & Clark, say hello to people- get to know the people in the community since even though a campus may be beautiful, it is the people that make a school what it is.
Favorite place to spend time in Portland: I am a big fan of the gardens in this city. The Japanese Garden, the International Rose Test Garden, the Lan Su Chinese Garden, and of course the garden in my mom’s backyard. I love having such great access to the urban aspects of Portland, but I also love enjoying some peace and quiet. Picnics are a must.
If I was stranded on a desert island, I would want these three things: Assuming this desert island would have electricity and a WiFi signal, I would bring my iPad since with it all things are possible. Then I would sit under a beach umbrella drinking Diet Pepsi while watching Lost on Netflix. There is something very meta about watching Lost on a desert island. (This answer brought to you by the year 2010.)
If I didn’t work in Admissions, I would be: Wishing I worked in Admissions again. Or working as a skydiving instructor. Or just traveling the world!
