How did you get involved with the Board? “I hadn’t been involved with PSU for 5 years. Until a fellow board member recommended that I get involved. Personally, I was seeking professional growth and a community.”

What does the association provide alumni? “Alumni care about professional development and growth, we have some amazing alums in really great leadership positions in Portland. Connection is important, not just people, but companies.”

On PSU: “When I came to PSU, I was not a traditional student. I was a mother in my 30’s. I worked the majority of the time while I was in school. My daughter jokes that she is a PSU alum too, because she was always at PSU with me in the daycare center.”
