Interim Assistant Director
I grew up just south of Corvallis on a cattle ranch in Harrisburg, OR but, after leaving for college, have lived in Michigan, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. Needless to say, Oregon is my favorite! The natural beauty, climate, and people are unlike anywhere else. Outside of work, I enjoy running, baking (especially marionberry pies), hiking, reading Wendell Berry, and exploring the Pacific Northwest. On a given Friday night, there is also a good chance I am at Darkside Cinema catching a show, too. My goal is to someday camp/hike my way along trails from Corvallis to the coast.
My favorite part of working in our office is the opportunity to partner with students in making their Oregon State experience personally transformative, especially through their interactions with other students and the local Corvallis community. I love getting to know students' interests and passions - OSU students really do change the world!
