The celebration and support of diversity, equity and inclusion at Portland State and The School of Business drew me to this role, and that culture continues to be one of the best parts of working in this community. As a queer woman, it was important for me to find affinity and support the voices of my community at The School of Business.
I am most passionate about playing a positive role in helping our students get where they want to go. For most of our graduate students, the time they spend with us is transformational. They create important relationships, gain relevant knowledge and skills, earn a valuable credential and — above all — pursue their dreams and aspirations. It is an honor to be part of that process.
