Favorite spot on campus: The Howard pedestrian bridge.

Little-known fact about me: I worked at Disneyland for eight months after graduating from undergrad.

Piece of advice for students in the college search process: Don’t be shy or afraid to ask questions. The process of looking at colleges to attend after graduating high school can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be! Connect with your school counselors and your teachers about your post-graduation aspirations. Ask about different colleges, universities, and academic programs. I would be more than happy to answer any and all questions you might have about Lewis & Clark College student life on campus, financial aid, student clubs, the food on campus, anything!

Favorite place to spend time in Portland: Hiking the Lower Macleay Trailhead up to the Pittock Mansion, rain or shine!

If I was stranded on a desert island, I would want these three things: A fair selection of food options, sturdy and reliable shelter, and a dog to keep me company.

If I didn’t work in Admissions, I would be: Working as a boom mic operator on the set of a film or TV show.
