Committee(s): Alumni Engagement and Communications

Why I Wanted to Serve on the Alumni Council:

I was motivated to join the alumni council by three main things. First, updating and providing better linkages between alumni and the college by better utilization of social media. Second, increasing the number of events in secondary markets such as Portland. Third, providing relevant messaging to different generations of alumni.

Mostly however I wanted to join to give back to my beloved Grinnell.

A Quote I Like:

"It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit."

―President Harry S. Truman

A Little Bit About Me:

I am currently employed by the State of Oregon's Higher Education Coordinating Commission as a university fiscal analyst, focusing on university finance, higher education policy, accountability and legislative relations. I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and dog, traveling, and rooting for my beloved Blazers, Ducks, Timbers, and Thorns.

Other Alumni Involvement: Reunion Class Committee; Alumni Interviewer
