    What is your role?

    I manage our websites, blog, social media platforms as well as writing for articles, publications and designing presentations.  My outreach responsibilities involve connecting campus with partner organizations for service opportunities. 

    What is your favorite part about working at the CSCE?

    The University’s commitment to sustained and focused community engagement is what drew me in, but it is the people doing the incredible work on the ground that continue to give my work meaning.  I am honored to be a part of this joyful, driven and thoughtful team.  This team approaches everything they do with zeal—from office kickball games to serving students, staff, faculty and community.

    What is your professional and educational background?

    I graduated from Whitman College in 2012 with a B.A. in Politics.  I worked in fund development and communications for an Eastside affordable housing organization, Imagine Housing, before joining the team here at the CSCE.

    What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

    I first took a salsa dancing lesson during my semester abroad in Ecuador.  Ever since, I have really enjoyed exploring the salsa scene in Seattle and it’s one of my favorite things to go do with friends in my spare time.
