Finance and Budget Director

June 2019 - June 2020 Seattle, WA
“The people who work and serve in the ASUW are some of the most passionate, involved, and dedicated students I've ever met and it was an honor to work alongside them. The ASUW's energy and community make coming into the office every day something to look forward to instead of something to dread. Also, choosing your own schedule, making your own hours, and having the opportunity to engage directly in servant leadership are all benefits to working for this association.”

Communications Director

June 2018 - June 2019 Seattle, WA
“I enjoyed being able to work with other student leaders on campus who wanted to create and support various changes and improvements on campus. In my position, I got to oversee and manage various projects in both the creative and technical realms, as well as help produce official statements on behalf of the association. I learned a lot of tangible and soft skills that I can bring to my next career after college.”
