I have spent more than 15 years working professionally with college and university residential programs at both public and private institutions. My work has included learning community design, program assessment, leadership and team building, emergency management, and diversity initiatives. Recently, I completed an interdisciplinary doctorate in Psychology, Communication, and Social Work at the University of Washington, and hold a Master’s in Education from the University of Vermont.
Area Director for HHA Halls (Holmes, Hartzfeld, and East, West, Roberts Apartments)
I am originally from Reedsville, WI, a small village in Northeast Wisconsin. I received my BS in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Then I completed my MS in Higher Education at Syracuse University in Upstate NY. My first professional job was as a Community Director at Arizona State University. And now my countrywide tour has brought me to Portland! I enjoy all things nerdy: sci-fi, fantasy, anime, board games, video games, you name it! Feel free to stop by my office in Holmes if you need anything or just want to talk about something you are passionate about.
I am originally from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, but have called Portland home since 2015. I received my bachelor’s in Graphic Design and Studio Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and my Master’s in Student Affairs from the University of Portland. I have been a Hall Director and Assistant Hall Director for the last four years, and previously worked in retail design for Nike. I’m excited to be continuing in student affairs at Lewis and Clark, and especially Copeland Hall! In my free time, I enjoy golfing, learning new board games and yard games, making art (and now rugs!), and spending time with my partner and dog. If you ever need a trivia all-star give me a call.
Area Director for Forest Halls (Alder, Juniper, Manzanita, Ponderosa, and Spruce)
I grew up in the Bay Area in a small city called El Cerrito in California. I received a BS in Kinesiology and MA in Leadership Development with an emphasis in Higher Education from Chapman University in Southern California. There, I worked with Residence Life & First Year Experience, the Cross-Cultural Center, and Student Government. I’m a huge fan of the outdoors, crocheting, live music (anything from punk to hip hop and more), and watching my favorite “trash” reality TV shows. I’m beyond stoked to join the Campus Living team and be a part of the amazing Lewis & Clark College community!
Area Director for Platt-Howard Halls (Platt and Howard)
I am from the Carolinas (a bit of both SC and NC) and I am excited to see what life is like on the other coast! I earned a BFA in Fine Arts from Cornell University in 2017, and an M.Ed from Clemson University in 2021. While at Clemson, I primarily worked in Fraternity and Sorority Life with our National Pan-Hellenic Council (historically Black organizations) and our Multicultural Greek Council. Beyond student affairs, I’ve also held jobs in theatre, marketing, and mental health & wellness. I am looking forward to furthering diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives at LC and jumping back into residence life with this amazing creative community! In my free time, you can catch me playing video games, working on my creative business, taking photos, sipping coffee/tea, volunteering with my sorority, and hanging out with my partner and our two cats & snake (Muffin, Boba, and Henry).
Area Director for SOA Halls (Stewart, Odell, and Akin)
I’m originally from Tacoma, Washington and love the vast scenery and rainy day vibes the PNW is known for. I graduated with my BS in Chemistry from Saint Martin’s University and my MA in Higher Education and Student Affairs from the University of Portland. Previously, I also worked for Washington State University’s Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life. I’m passionate about incorporating diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice into student development and the student experience. In my free time, you can catch me discovering beautiful new coffee shops around Portland, running, hiking, backpacking, or enjoying the (not so) occasional Netflix binge.
I’m originally from a small town in southern India and moved to the US for college after completing the United World Colleges program. I graduated from the Lewis & Clark College in 2019 with a double major in psychology and theatre and am pursuing my masters in Student Affairs Administration from the Lewis & Clark graduate school. I also have a background in residential mental health and am passionate about its intersections with education and student affairs. I love coffee, watching TV shows, seeing live theatre, listening to music, and everything cat related. I can be found hanging out with my cat and catching up on my favorite TV shows.
While I’m originally from Simi Valley, California, I now call Portland home. I received my BA in Psychology from Lewis & Clark and minored in art and art history. During my time at LC, I lived in Howard Hall, Odell Hall, Holmes Hall, and West Apartment. Now, I work in Campus Living and also plan New Student Orientation for the undergraduate campus at Lewis & Clark. I spend my free time hand throwing pots, cooking, and crocheting.
