1) Tell us a little bit about your background and what brought you to Lewis & Clark College?
I started working in Human Resources in 2014, after many years of customer service work in various industries. I’ve gotten to work a bit with recruiting and onboarding, payroll, and employee relations and I have enjoyed all of it. The bulk of my experience is in benefits, specifically in administering leaves of absence, such as FMLA and OFLA leave.
My friends who attended Lewis & Clark all really appreciated their time and experiences here, especially the community they felt with their cohorts and educators. So naturally, I jumped at the chance to be part of the L&C community, and I’m truly grateful to work with this stellar HR team!
2) What are your HR Specialties that people can reach out to you for?
Leaves of absence (FMLA/ OFLA, etc.)
Accommodations (ADA- Americans with Disabilities Act)
3) What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
I love playing bar trivia and having game nights with friends. My partner and I enjoy doing puzzles, kayaking, and cuddling/ playing with our labradane, Henry Pawllins. I’ve also dabbled in amateur standup/ comedy writing, and I love any chance to be silly and bring some levity to the situation
