About your Admission Counselor

Favorite Things About Willamette:

I chose to make higher education my career because I loved everything about my experience at Willamette – I never wanted to leave! I also can't say enough about the people that I shared my collegiate experience with – I made incredible, life-long friendships with people that I truly love and admire. They are all doing great things with their lives and are successful in so many important ways; I count myself very fortunate to be in their company.

Favorite Subject:

I studied English at Willamette because I simply love to read and talk about books. My senior project on Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury was a highlight of my time here. I also minored in religious studies and would count Doug McGaughey's "Religion and Science" class among the top few intellectual experiences of my life.

Favorite Summer Activity:

I love to spend time at our family beach house in Neskowin, Oregon. It's such a tiny town that our whole focus is the beach and one another. There's no shopping, no cable, and our phones don't get a signal – it's very relaxing and great for our kids.

Coke or Pepsi:

Coke, hands down. Pepsi isn't worth the calories!

Favorite Quotes:

I have many, but here are two of them:

"There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle or you can live as if everything is a miracle." - Albert Einstein

"We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.” - C. S. Lewis
