Leadership Programs Coordinator

June 2018 - June 2019 Portland, OR
“I loved this job for so many reasons! My supervisor, Heather Spalding, was always incredibly supportive of my goals personally, academically, and professionally. She helped connect me with other administrators on campus that I could learn from for my specific career goals, and those opportunities have been so valuable to me. She's also really flexible and understanding when schoolwork needs to be a priority over work. I also love how shared leadership exists within the student staff here. There is a lot of collaboration and community that develops between the team so you always feel supported. I'm also really grateful that my identity as a trans/nonbinary student was understood and accepted by my supervisor and coworkers. Through changes in my name and pronouns while in this position, they were all nothing but supportive and respectful. ”
