Matt Cook

HR Generalist and Benefits Manager

Tell us a little bit about your background and what brought you to Lewis & Clark College?

I spent the last 11 years working through a wide variety of roles at a large insurer in downtown Portland. I have extensive experience in employee benefits and a passion for helping folks work through whatever circumstance they happen to be in.


What are your HR specialties that people can reach out to you for?

I can help you with questions about:

  • Benefits (including medical, dental, life/LTD)
  • Retirement benefits
  • Leaves (including FMLA/OFLA and bereavement)
  • ADA accommodations

What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?

I enjoy bike rides and getting out in nature when I can afford the time and am always up for a good board game. You may catch me just walking around campus on my lunch break to take in our beautiful surroundings.
