What is one thing you wish you knew about college before you started as a student?

Just because you are accepted somewhere, does not mean you have to attend. Look at the overall price of what attending that school will cost and compare options.

What do you like to do when you're not working?

Cook and bake; explore new places; play with my children.

Hello! I am happy to be a member of Career and Advising and look forward to assist future Gators! Before coming to Green River, I worked for a South King County non-profit as a housing and employment case manager for three years. I was a first-generation college student and am currently pursuing an MPA. Community issues and causes that I stand and advocate for include antiracism and breaking down systems of oppression, houselessness, hunger and poverty, and equitable economic and education opportunities for all.
