Yreka, CA

Bio: In 2015, I completed my undergraduate degree in Community and Regional Development from the University of California, Davis. After undergrad, I worked for two years as a grant writing and project management consultant for a small consulting firm local to Davis. Our clients included the City of Davis, Yolo County, and a number of nonprofit organizations in the area, and their projects ranged from trail construction to habitat restoration. While I loved my job, I was truly passionate about social policy issues, such as access to education, women’s empowerment, and community development.

Here at UW, I am the Secretary for the Graduate and Professional Student Senate (GPSS) for the 2018-2019 school year. I am also an active member of the GPSS Travel Grants Committee and the GPSS Diversity Committee. In my spare time, I love exploring the different neighborhoods in Seattle and the nearby islands, and trying out as many new restaurants as possible.

Why did you choose Evans?: The Evans School provided me with the widest array of opportunities to explore my interests, specifically social policy and nonprofit management. Furthermore, the admissions staff with Evans were phenomenal! There were so many resources available to me as I was making my graduate school decision, and the admissions team was incredibly helpful and responsive whenever I had questions. Evans was my #1 choice, and I don’t think I could have chosen anywhere better!
