# of years at OSU: 7
Best part of your job: The best part of my job is working with the different people groups associated with Extension Outreach and Engagement. My job functions looks different nearly every day and I get the pleasure of interacting with a cadre of people including youth K-12th grade, adult volunteers, non-profit organizations, community organizations, and colleagues throughout OSU.
Something someone might be surprised to know about you: In the summer of 2014, with two days’ notice, I decided to climb Mt. Shasta. The second tallest peak in the Cascade Range. It was a difficult, and scary at times trek to the summit. It truly was an experience I will not soon forget.
Favorite book/movie/album: I am an avid reader and enjoy a plethora of different novels. My current favorite author is Daniel Silva. Though I will admit, I’m a major fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and enjoy reading the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I have read the trilogy nearly every year all the way through since junior high.
I also enjoy movies, and can quote line for line nearly every word of Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.
