How long I’ve been working here and what path brought me to Oregon Tech

I’ve been working at Oregon Tech since January of 2012. I came to Klamath Falls in 2008, to major in Communication Studies and play basketball for legendary coach Danny Miles.  I had the time of my life at Oregon Tech, both on the court and in the classroom. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to make a living and give back to my alma mater. Go Owls!

What I’m most passionate about professionally

I love communicating and getting to know people, which is perfect for the Alumni Relations field. I’ve always felt passionately about creating relationships and helping others reach their goals.

Why I enjoy working in Development & Alumni Relations

I enjoy the great team atmosphere in the University Development department and the opportunity to communicate and create relationships with Alumni of Oregon Tech. There truly isn’t a better university to work for!

Favorite Quote

I believe this quote pertains to any situation in life, not just athletics. "I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he hold dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious." -Vince Lombardi
