Tell us a little bit about your background and what brought you to Lewis & Clark College?
I started my professional career by graduating from Lewis & Clark Law School. I spent several years gaining experience as an employment attorney, district manager, entrepreneur, and human resources professional in public and private organizations. Nineteen years after graduating law school, I returned home to Lewis & Clark with leadership, management, business, legal and higher education experience—uniquely positioned to support the human resource department at Lewis & Clark College in its next journey.

What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
I love life, and I love spending time enjoying life. It’s important for me to spend time with my husband, children, grandchildren, and my friends; we love to spend time together at the Oregon vineyards that are so close to home. I also love to travel and explore different parts of the world.
