Seattle University Magazine Alumni Spotlight

I want to give back to the university because it has given so much to me through the lessons, scholarships and the Jesuit values which molded me into who I am today. Seattle University has a heart for service and I've always been drawn to service. I want to be able to pass the torch to other students and alumni through the work of the Alumni Board and the university.

I believe in trying to focus my volunteer work on mentoring the next generation of attorneys because I was once that student. I was not one of those law students who knew what they wanted to do. It was really through working through people at the law school ...this support network of faculty, staff and alumni... that I found my dream job. The law school instilled a sense of giving back.
