Favorite spot on campus: South Campus! One of my favorite ways to shake off a Portland winter as a student was to spend the day soaking up rays on the grass with a good book and friends.

Little-known fact about me:  My first time traveling outside of the US was for my LC study abroad program in Kenya and Tanzania.

Piece of advice for students in the college search process: I taught high school for several years before joining the LC admissions team and one thing I always told my seniors was this: research, research, research. If you’re choosing to apply to a school, you should be able to explain to someone your reasons why! You don’t have to know everything, obviously, but I think it helps to know the specific parts of a school that make you excited to apply in the first place. School websites are a great starting point - reaching out to admissions staff and/or current students is even better.

Favorite place to spend time in Portland: Sunset picnics at Mt. Tabor, bike rides in Sellwood along the river, berry-picking in the summertime at Sauvie Island

If I didn’t work in Admissions, I would be: I would love to own a little independent movie theater. I grew up in Los Angeles and some of my favorite memories are going to the movies with my older siblings and cousins all around the city. There’s just something about the smell of popcorn in the lobby that gets me every time…SO nostalgic.
