Favorite Spot on Campus:  The reflecting pool! How could it not be?

Little known fact about me: Every single pet I’ve owned, with the exception of a frog named Bubbles, has had black and white fur, coat, or quills.

Piece of Advice for students in the college search process: Visit, visit, visit! Even if you don’t think you’ll like a school, I still recommend you check it out for yourself! You can learn a lot by looking at a college’s website or reading about the facts in the Fiske guide, but if you truly want to know if you will like a college, visit it. A good visit can affirm your decision or challenge it. Either way, it can be key when deciding on your home for the next four years.

Favorite place to spend time in Portland: Anywhere with good food and coffee!

If I was stranded on a desert island, I would want these three things Probably a Wilson volleyball and a pocket watch with Helen Hunt’s picture in it. If Tom Hanks can survive with that, so can I. However, if I really had to pick a third item it would be a magic genie lamp. My first wish? Get me off this island.

If I didn’t work in Admissions, I would be: Working with College Possible or similar organizations geared toward helping high achieving, low income students achieve their goals of attending college! Also maybe test my hand at stand-up comedy? I’m still counting on being headhunted by SNL. Fingers crossed.
