Greetings! I have served as an admissions evaluator and senior interviewer for Dartmouth College, my alma mater, where I majored in Religion and Environmental Studies. I have read and evaluated hundreds of undergraduate applications over the course of three separate years with the Admissions Office, and also served as the District Enrollment Director of Western Washington, training alumni on the art of interviewing prospective students.
I have two masters degrees from Yale; I pursued a joint-degree program between the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and Yale Divinity School. Before graduate school I served as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Philippines.
Pursuing a call to teach, I currently work as an adjunct professor at the University of Washington and Seattle University. I have taught classes on topics including eco-theology, trash, nature writing, salmon restoration, GMO seeds, grant-writing, and race/gender/power & privilege. My communications course at UW, which covers writing, public speaking and editing skills, is particularly useful in coaching students through the process of essay composition and interview presentation.
In my spare time I enjoy backpacking in the Cascade Mountains, reading fiction, and joining my husband coaching our two young daughters in the appreciation of absurdity.
