Economics major/math minor


Hi! I transferred to Lewis & Clark from Portland Community College in 2016 after earning an Associate’s degree. I came to LC knowing that I wanted to continue studying economics, and I am now an economics major and math minor. My transition from Laguna Beach, CA to Portland in 2010 was easy because I quickly fell in love with the climate, culture, and emphasis on delicious, local food here. Although I hope to have the opportunity to travel once I graduate, I would be happy to end up back in the Pacific Northwest. In the rare moments I am not studying, you can find me baking something sweet, hanging out with my cat Lollipop, or watching Lord of the Rings.
