What three words would you use to describe L&C?

Tight-knit, Personalized, Transformational

What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?

I wanted to get a well rounded and personalized education while also being able to pursue varsity athletics. I also loved the campus and the fact that it was located in a city.


What have you been doing since graduation?

I have been working, exploring career options, and traveling.


How did Lewis & Clark prepare you for your job?

L&C prepared me through allowing me to and always encouraging me to pursue all my interests. This allowed me to gain a diverse and adaptable skillset that prepared me for existing in the workplace and world, not just prepare for one job.


What would you say is the most important thing you learned at Lewis & Clark?

The most important thing I learned was to study and invest in the things that make you the most excited and that you enjoy the most, rather than what you think you should do. That is the way you will truly get the most out of whatever you do.


Why did you major in psychology?

I have always been fascinated by what makes people who they are and how they connect with the world around them and psychology allowed me to explore that.


Why did you minor in political science?

I have always been interested in history, social justice, politics, and law and political science allowed me to explore the areas I was interested in. It gave me a better understanding of the world around me as well as globally, and was the first step in me wanting to go into a career that involved law.


How do you stay connected to Lewis & Clark as an alum?

I stay connected through the alumni event put on by Lewis & Clark as well as the women’s soccer team. Also through maintaining friendships and relationships made during that time.
