I support our Events Team in planning and executing strategic events that engage the UW community, alumni, donors, students, faculty and staff.

When did you start with the UW?

I started as a student intern in 2010. I graduated from UW in 2012 with a BA in Art History and was fortunate to be able to stay on the team. I love the creative aspect of my job, working with so many incredible colleagues across campus and being a part of the UW’s mission.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

My dream superpower would be teleportation! It would be particularly wonderful during the cold and wet Seattle winter months and would save so much time!
