DJS to me means acknowledging the differences among us (people and environment), which is beautiful, as well as complicated, as systems are not equitable for all and can create destruction of the natural world around us; it is the value to engage with these complications and strive toward making a positive change.


I come with several years of experience working in higher education. I interned at Northwest University in their Wellness Center in 2017-2018; then worked at Seattle Pacific University as a Career Counselor. I started at PLU in September of 2020 in the Alumni & Student Connections office, continuing in the career services field. I worked closely with the DJS office, and finally transitioned to the office in April 2023. My degree in counseling psychology and passion for DEI work motivates me to support, advocate and uplift underrepresented students.

I grew up in Seattle and lived there most of my adult life, but now live in Graham with my fiancé.  Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, road trips, spending time with family and friends, walking my bulldog Missy, and reading a good book.
