WSU Vancouver is an incredible place for students, faculty and staff to come together through services, activities and events on campus. I feel lucky that my job allows me, and my staff, to provide many of these amazing opportunities.

These offices report to me and I work with them to support student retention: Student Resource Center, Disability Services, Counseling Services and the Office of Student Involvement. Together we work to ensure students have a quality experience outside the classroom, specifically in the areas related to leadership, involvement, recreation, clubs, disability support, counseling, study abroad, career development, success workshops, and more.

I enjoy working with student leaders, interns and our student employees, and my philosophy with student leaders is that all individuals have the capability of being a leader.

Additionally, I serve on a number of committees and programming boards, including: Graduate Student Travel Grant, Undergraduate Travel Grant, S&A Fee accounts, Cougar Leadership Series, Student Media Board, University Risk Management, Women of Distinction selection committee.

I am also a proud Cougar alum- GO COUGS!
