Director for Program Outreach and Development

Greetings from Lewis & Clark! As the Director for Program Outreach and Development, I am fortunate to have a position that I love. This is because I have the opportunity to work with an exceptional faculty and student body. It is fascinating for me to meet students from around the world, and to teach courses that help meet their linguistic and socio-cultural objectives.

Lewis & Clark College is located in a very safe and beautiful part of Portland, Oregon. Through extra-curricular activities such as field trips to the mountains or coast, visits to local businesses, and other activities that support our courses, we introduce students to our city and state. It is always a pleasure to welcome new students, returning students, and alumni from around the world to our campus. If you would like more information about our programs, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
