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

I began working at Oregon Tech in April 2006. During my time at Oregon Tech I have served as Assistant Director for Business Affairs, Director of Budget Planning, Foundation Accounting Manager and Executive Director for the Oregon Tech Foundation. Before starting at Oregon Tech, I gained experience working as a Controller for Jeld-Wen, Inc. and as a Comptroller for Klamath Community College. I am happy to work at my alma mater and to be a part of helping others achieve a life goal.

What I'm most passionate about professionally

Nothing makes me smile more than a quick account reconciliation or working toward a new solution or idea.

Why I enjoy working in Development & Alumni Relations

The opportunities we create for people to make a change in their lives whether it’s through connections with alumni, students being able to achieve a greater potential or donors investing in their values. It’s amazing to be a part of something that can have such a profound impact.
