Personal Statement: 

As an alumni of South Puget Sound Community College, I applied for my current position with the hopes that I could give back to a school that took such good care of me as a student. My goal is to care for our employees so that they can in turn care for our students. 

I participated in running start part-time my junior year of high school. I went back to high school full-time my senior year, and consider that to be a mistake. I am happy to talk about my experience and about the noticeable differences going back to high school from college, as well as what its like to have participated in running start partially and to return to South Puget Sound Community college after high school graduation.  

I am a huge advocate for being open about mental health. As a psychology major, I believe it is important that people are able to speak openly about anxiety, depression, and anything else they may be going through. Mental health is important, just like physical health, so make sure you take care of yourself.

I am the Nerd Club Advisor here at SPSCC. As a nerd in my own right, I have found it a pleasure and a joy working with our students in this capacity. If you have questions/comments/concerns about the club, I am happy to talk to you. In the event I don't have the answers you're looking for, I am also happy to direct you to the people you'd need to talk to. We have a wonderful group of students who are passionate about many different subjects, and I am honored to be their advisor. 


I love cats. Be prepared.
