As the training and development specialist at OSAC, I designed an online toolkit to support the state’s college mentoring program in over 45 sites in Oregon.

I also developed and implemented a multicultural and community outreach plan for the admissions office.

I continue to be a trusted expert in the financial aid community, providing national and regional training's.
