After Lewis & Clark

English is a practical degree with broad applications. Here are a few examples of what some recent English majors are doing now:

  • Erica Terpening-Romeo ’14 was the first person ever to win both of the college’s highest academic honors. She was active in Lewis & Clark’s theatre department and the broader Portland theatre scene. She served as artistic director for a local Shakespeare company while studying at L&C! She is now working toward an MFA in directing at Boston University.
  • Isabel Greiner ’12 graduated with a double major in English and art history. Since then, one thing has led to another and she has pursued a number of professional interests, including museum work, interior design, and research psychology. She is currently earning a master’s in social work at Smith College.
  • Sam Barber ’11 spent his first few years after graduating brewing beer for Breakside Brewery here in Portland. He now lobbies at the Oregon Legislature on behalf of clients like the Oregon Academy of Family Physicians and the Oregon Rural Health Association.
  • Nate Moyer ’11 double majored in English and Hispanic studies. In 2017 he earned a master’s of public administration from the University of Washington with a specialty in international development. Nate has worked as the executive director of Zosseo Overland Support, a nonprofit bringing dental care to underserved areas of East Africa, and served with the Peace Corps in China. He is currently working for Seattle International Foundation, where he leads the annual Central America Donors Forum.
