Anastacia joined the Financial Aid staff in 1998 as a temporary financial aid counselor and has worked at Lewis & Clark ever since. She was the Associate Director from 2000 to 2010 and is now the Director. Anastacia grew up in Redmond, Washington (before it was home to Microsoft!) and moved to Oregon to attend Linfield College where she became acquainted with two lifelong loves – her husband and Japan. She received her BA in Economics and Political Science and minored in International Studies. She and her husband eventually moved to Japan where they taught English with the JET Program.
She is currently completing her MBA through George Fox University so she spends most of her free-time studying and trying to keep up with her two children, Nathan and Julia. When she does have downtime, she enjoys cooking as well as reading mystery novels set in international locations. She and her family are active members of Calvin Presbyterian Church and enjoy traveling and camping.
