As a department manager, I have a wide range of experience working with various departments across campus. Even though I’ve only been an OA at UO for a couple of years, I have university administrative experience from my previous institutions. At Bellevue College I served as the Assistant Director for International Admissions and was part of the International Student Leadership Council. At Portland Community College I served as the International Admissions Coordinator for all campuses and centers, and was on the Diversity Committee at Rock Creek. I hold an M.A. in German Language & Literature from UO, and an M.A. in Education from PSU with a focus on working with international, permanent resident, and refugee/asylee students. Due to the constantly changing environment within international education, I have a great deal of experience with faculty/staff mediation, organizational restructuring and transition, and updating processes and procedures. In my spare time I like to read, sew, and go to concerts.
