Here in Honors I… am one of two Graduate Staff Assistants. I assist with Interdisciplinary Honors admissions, managing the front desk, and various diversity and equity projects.

I like thinking about & studying… the potential students have to make the world better. I am currently a first year student at the Evans school, on track for my Masters in Public Administration. Along with working and studying here, I am an Associate Board Member at YWCA Pierce County and the Treasurer for the 28th LD Democrats. When I am not thinking about social injustice or working on a reading assignment, I can be found planning my next international adventure, catching up on my To-Read list, or watching TV.

My first week in college… I met some amazing women who all went on to study and work in a variety of fields. Though we don’t get to see each other everyday (one of them lives in Virginia!) we still manage to check in with one another.
