Tina is passionate about exploring intersections between student life, classroom, and career experiences; engaging students to “learn by doing”. Her core values include social change, equity, and the ability to recognize trial and error as part of the journey to success. Tina partners with students to support them in advocating for themselves and others.
When she is not engaging with students to create their home at PLU, using design thinking to reflect and improve people’s experiences, or participating in a collaborative brainstorming session, you can find her on a walk with her family and Lucy (poodle) or answering the question “why?” for the billionth time (as a parent for 2 boys).
As a professional with 20 years of experience, she’s worked in University, nonprofit, media, and corporate communication settings in Washington, NY and California, but is happy to make her home at her alumni, PLU.
