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

Oregon Tech has been an influence all throughout my life. I’m proud to be an alum and even more proud to represent the university as an employee.

After working for JELD-WEN, Inc. and Klamath Community College, I joined Oregon Tech in 2006. I stepped away for two years to pursue other interests and then returned to Oregon Tech in 2017. I couldn’t be happier working with University Development and the Oregon Tech Foundation.

What I am most passionate about professionally

I really enjoy putting systems in place to streamline tasks and processes, to help others develop professionally, and to be honest in my work.

Why I enjoy working in Development & Alumni Relations

It’s the feeling of making a difference every day that makes it a great place to work.
