Cleveland, OH

Bio: For undergrad, I studied Speech Pathology and Linguistics at Ohio University. There, I joined a community service fraternity (APO) which spurred a love of service and inspired me to participate in two years of AmeriCorps (NCCC and VISTA), ultimately leading me to pursue a career path in the nonprofit sector. In the three years I’ve lived in Seattle prior to Evans, I’ve worked with both large and small nonprofits in areas of community engagement, program management, and resource development. As a proud first-generation student, I am interested in topics related higher education access. In addition to school, I am currently an intern with the Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center here at UW where I support undergraduate students in professional internships with Seattle-based nonprofits. In my free time I enjoy running, cooking, and eating the best vegetarian food Seattle has to offer.

Why did you choose Evans?: I decided to return to school to further my learning around systemic inequity and oppression and to develop the tools to help impact lasting social change. I appreciate the quantitative skills the core courses at Evans offer and their ability to meet students’ needs from varied educational backgrounds. I also love Seattle for the weather, access to nature, and vegetarian-friendly food.
