Why do I work at Linfield: I loved my Linfield experience as a student and was inspired to share that experience with prospective future Wildcats. What makes me stay at Linfield is the wonderful working environment the college and my co-workers create and the fact that I believe in the college and the product we are producing in successful students. In our office we are more like family than simply co-workers and I feel like that also portrays what it’s like to be a student at Linfield. Plus I enjoy meeting prospective students and helping them through the college search.
Dream location to live: One day I’d like to live in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico! I would go snorkeling every day and explore the Mayan ruins of the Yucatan Peninsula.
Best Linfield Memory: There’s a tie! Studying abroad in Oaxaca, Mexico changed my life, but also seeing how proud my Dad was of me when I earned my varsity letter on the Linfield Lacrosse team.
If you’re not from Oregon you should visit: Crater Lake, the beach (doesn’t matter which one - just don’t jump in), Multnomah Falls, Powell’s Books in Portland, Bend and see the Three Sisters mountain range, and the Willamette Valley anytime during rainy season (everyone should go puddle jumping at least once in their life!).
Favorite Linfield Event: Homecoming football games are fun because all of my Linfield friends return to campus for the day! I also love the Linfield theatre productions and the fall and spring dance ensemble performances.
I cannot live without: Dancing! I enjoy all styles and as a way to be active and dancing on a regular basis I’ve started teaching Zumba.
