Favorite Quote: “I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” – Lewis Carroll

Favorite thing about Whitworth: The people! Every single person I’ve met at Whitworth, whether student, staff, or faculty, has been so kind and open. The community here at Whitworth is full of the most genuine people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. They create this incredible community feel that’s difficult to explain until you become a part of it!

Advice for Whitworth applicants: The best way to experience what sets Whitworth apart and makes it special is to visit! Whether before or after you apply, visiting and immersing yourself into the community here will help you find whether this is the right college fit for you.

Free for all: I am a professional choral singer in the Seattle area, so when I’m not traveling to area high schools in Western Washington or reading applications, I’m probably singing! My husband and I are avid stand-up paddle-boarders in the summer months, so you might catch us cruising in the Puget Sound. I have a beloved black cat, Zoe, who makes life fun and fills my vacuum with black fur. I’m excited to have recently joined the Whitworth community – go Pirates!
