Location: Library Building, Rm 2137

I have worked in student affairs for nine years, five of which have been at Evergreen. I am originally from CA but have lived and worked in several states around the country. I received both my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Counseling Psychology from the University of Southern Mississippi. I have always enjoyed my work with students, but feel that  I am learning and  interacting with the students and staff in First Peoples in more complex and interesting ways than in the past. Stop by and say hi! I’d love to meet you.

Location: Library Building, Rm 2135

I was born in a land of cracked earth, relentless heat and giant mosquitoes aka Texas. I earned my Masters Degree in Teaching and have worked for TESC since 1987 when I started attending as a student. I love reading, painting, singing and talking to nice people. I have been learning and teaching issues of equity and anti-racism for over 25 years and I learn something new everyday. I have served as the Coordinator for Student Support programs for the office of First Peoples Multicultural Advising Services since 1997, where I get to supervise the Peer advisor program (and work with wonderfully talented amazing students and staff) and help coordinate a variety of amazing events. I live in Olympia with my partner (of 25 wonderful & amazing years).  I  love the rain, the ocean, magic, trees, rocks, glitter, peace and kindness and almost everything silly. But like Chupacabras and Bigfoot I am super camera shy. Please stop by the office I would love to meet you in person!
