As a proud Portland Oregon native I have lived here all of my life. Sometimes people say that I should live in other places and I reply to such a remark, “Why would I want to live any place else? Oregon has everything I want!” Oregon offers so many recreational opportunities that I love, rock climbing in central Oregon, snowboarding at Hood, hiking in the Gorge, kayaking around the inlets of the coast, cross country skiing in Bend – just to name a few!
For me, PCC is a perfect fit. I feel very connected to the needs of the students at PCC – I have been a PCC student and I have a PCC associate’s degree in graphic design. I also understand the requirements of students who wish to continue their education by transferring to a four year institution.
I have been working for the PCC Library for 15 years in the Sylvania Access Services department as a Library Technician with several specializations. I have been the lending and borrowing Summit Coordinator for the PCC Library, the Interlibrary Loan Specialist backup, the Course Reserve Specialist, and the Student Billings Specialist. I am currently working at the Southeast Campus Library, a vibrant and diverse space that is bursting with students. I am honored to assist students and staff at this location and we are all very excited that Southeast has become the next (fourth) comprehensive campus for PCC!
