Bailey TitusBailey Titus, BA
Administrative Coordinator

Pronouns she/her/hers

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and I will always consider Portland as my true home. I received my BA in History at Seattle University with a minor in Medieval Studies, focusing mostly on women’s and queer studies. My favorite spots in Oregon are Cannon Beach and The Gorge, but within Portland, you will most likely find me at one of the amazing used bookstores! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my partner and our two cats, as well watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
