Interim Executive Assistant to the Dean
Ridley started at PSU as a student. In 2013, he was hired as a temporary Registration and Records Coordinator for the School of Social Work before moving into a full-time position on the Academic Scheduling team. In October 2015, he returned to the School of Social Work in his current role of Office Manager. He now serves as the Interim Executive Assistant to the Dean.
Ridley loves working in higher education, and Portland State offers a wonderfully diverse community for professional, educational, and personal development. The School of Social Work is a fantastic group of faculty, staff, and students who are working to make the world a better place, and Ridley is honored to be part of this team!
When not working or in class, Ridley likes to explore nature throughout the Pacific Northwest with his faithful lab mix, Athena. Spare moments are also filled with reading, writing, and playing board games, especially during the rainy season. Road trips are his favorite way to recharge his spirit.
