Assistant Dean of Admissions
Lewis & Clark College
0615 SW Palatine Hill Road
Portland, OR 97219
Hometown: San Antonio, Texas born and bred.
Favorite spot on campus: The third-floor conference room of J.R. Howard Hall. I have spent many days and nights there studying or in meetings formerly as a student and now as a staff member. On a clear day, you have an unobstructed view of Mt. Hood to the east.
Little-known fact about me: I was a vegetarian for 2 years.
Piece of advice for students in the college search process: Prioritize what is important to you for college. Is it location? The size of a school? An academic discipline? And don’t hesitate to bring up your college search with family and friends. They might have suggestions of schools you have never heard of before that could be a perfect fit for you.
Favorite place to spend time in Portland: Southeast Portland is my new home and it is a great place to bike or walk around. There are many hidden gems on the east side of the river. A recent find for me is Cloud Cap Games where you can rent board games.
If I was stranded on a desert island, I would want these three things: My ipod, a skillet, and a basketball.
If I didn’t work in Admissions, I would be: Working towards a second degree in something. I guess I am what you would call a life-long learner, and would have to surround myself in education of some kind.
