Associate Director of Employer Relations
I’m a proud 2005 alumnus of the University of Washington Geography department and now enjoy the opportunity to help support employers, and connect my fellow Huskies with meaningful job and internship opportunities at great organizations that span the Puget Sound, country and even the globe.
I oversee an Employer Relations team that manages contact with thousands of employers annually – virtually through our HuskyJobs board or on-campus through our On-Campus Interview, InfoSession and Career Fair programming. How can we help you make your next great hire?
Director, Internship Project
I work on a lot of behind-the-scenes initiatives with a common goal – ensuring that UW students can access high-quality internships. For example, I create surveys, position statements, handouts, and presentations for…employers, academic departments, and UW students…to help make sure that all parties are on the same page and are maintaining an intentional focus on intern learning. I started at the Career & Internship Center as a counselor in 2004 and I’ve held a variety of roles since. Prior to that I spent time collecting degrees in the Midwest…go Jayhawks!
I have worked in the UW Career & Internship Center since 2004 and very much enjoy helping undergraduates, graduate students and recent graduates in everything and anything career related. The UW is a special place and I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with departments, programs, faculty, staff and most importantly, students.
I have worked in career services since 1993 and earned my master’s degree from Oregon State University in Corvallis and my bachelor’s degree from Western Washington University in Bellingham.
I love live music (big & small concerts), music discovery, half-marathons, roadtrips and outdoor adventures.
I work with current students (undergraduate and graduate) and recent graduates to help them explore majors, careers, and maximize their internship/job search. I help students articulate their strengths and identify opportunities to accelerate their learning and development. I facilitate a variety of workshops, teach a career planning/exploration class, and look forward to connecting with and supporting students and recent graduates in their endeavors.
I graduated with my B.A. in Geography & Environmental Studies from UCLA and my first career was a National Park ranger and environmental educator. I received my M.Ed. from WWU and now work with students in the great indoors.
As a generalist career counselor I enjoy working with students and alumni from all backgrounds on career exploration and development. In addition to career counseling and workshop facilitation, I also manage the center’s programming for graduate students. In collaboration with campus partners I look forward to helping all students decipher, investigate and plan next steps in their careers whether in academia or beyond.
A UW alumna (BA in Latin), I have career counseling experience in both university and community college settings and completed my graduate work (MS) at Northwestern University in Illinois.
I have been with the Career & Internship Center since June of 2015 and am a Career Counselor who can help undergraduates, graduate students, and alumni with any career related questions, problems, or concerns. I am a generalist career counselor, but have a keen interest in helping students in the College of Arts and Sciences. I am currently developing workshops that will help build “career” into the curricula and conversations of academic advisors and departments in the College of Arts and Sciences. I very much enjoy talking with students and alums on anything regarding UW life and career development and will work with you individually, or in small and large groups.
I have been in Seattle since 2006, arriving with a master’s degree in history from Northern Arizona University. I worked previously as a graduate student instructor and academic advisor in the Department of History at the University of Washington before joining the Career & Internship Center as a career counselor. I became enamored by career counseling while helping UW’s Department of History develop a professionalization and internship program for its undergraduate students and I am inspired to do this work full time now.
I work with undergraduates, graduate students and recent graduates of all majors, though I specially consult with majors in the Division of Natural Sciences. My bachelor’s degree is in International and Areas Studies, and I have a master’s degree in Strategic Communication. I enjoy using these perspectives to help students find connections between seemingly disparate interests and careers and communicate those connections to employers.
I was born and raised in Texas and made the leap to Seattle in 2015. I love being able to do stuff outdoors all year long and seeing mountains everywhere! On the weekends you might find me watching college football, hiking, exploring flea markets or trying to keep my succulents alive.
I provide career counseling to UW students and recent grads on a wide variety of career related topics. We can chat about anything from major exploration to salary negotiation, and beyond. I thoroughly enjoy helping students explore their unlimited possibilities and develop meaningful career paths.
I grew up in the Portland area, but left the NW for college and to explore other parts of the country (best decision ever!). I received a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Communication from Colorado State University, and a Master of Education in Counseling & Student Affairs from the University of West Georgia. I am happy to be back in the PNW, enjoying the coffee, the rain, and Pac-12 football.
As a career counselor I work with students and recent alumni from all majors and career interests through one-on-one counseling, workshop facilitation, and contributing to our Talent Communities blog. I enjoy supporting students in the dynamic process of career development which includes everything from opportunities to grow in self-awareness and decision making to the practical aspects of a job/internship search. My goal is to help students identify where they are at and take the next step toward what they want to do and who they want to be.
I have a M.Ed. in Student Development Administration from Seattle University and I received my B.S. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In my free-time I enjoy karaoke, watching football, hiking, crochet, and cooking.
As the Events Coordinator I’m responsible for planning and executing career fairs year-round and creating engaging events that get students connected with employers and opportunities. I love collaborating with student groups, employers, and colleagues across campus to provide quality events that meet the needs of everyone involved. Bringing student and employers together and creating opportunities for students to excel really lights my fire.
When I am not working, I love hiking, running around Green Lake, going to concerts, going to comedy stand-up shows, and spending time with family and friends,
I’m also a proud Husky alumna. Go DAWGS!
Assistant Director of Employer Relations
As Assistant Director, I work with employers that are interested in hiring UW students. This includes coordinating on-campus interviews and InfoSessions; educating employers about various recruiting practices; recommending tools and services to meet employers’ needs; and connecting employers and students with other UW departments and resources.
I’m originally from Toronto, and made my way across the continent to attend WSU. While earning a degree in Psychology, I competed for Cougar swimming in breaststroke and sprint freestyle. Following graduation I worked in recruiting, before making the transition to higher education.
Client Relations & Communications Manager
Navigating the many resources on campus can be incredibly difficult and it’s my job to help both students and employers make the right connections. Whether it be through creating engaging graphics, managing social media, or assisting our peer team in operations, I’ve got your needs covered!
I was born and raised in Tukwila, WA and I got my bachelor’s in biology. I love the relationships we share with ourselves and the natural world, however helping students through times of great transition has been ultimately fulfilling. Outside of work I enjoy long-boarding, drawing/painting, fancy coffee, and a good indie movie.
I support students and employers by managing the HuskyJobs database as well as the Husky Signature Employer Program for the Career & Internship Center. Whether you’re a student looking for a relevant career opportunity or an employer looking to build brand awareness on campus, I can help!
I received my bachelor’s degree from UW in International Studies in 2010 and am incredibly blessed to be back on this beautiful campus. Things I refuse to live without: Iced vanilla lattés, my twin sister (#twinlove), puppies, musical theatre, and YouTube.
I’m the Administrative Specialist and hold a unique position in partnership between Disability Resources for Students (DRS) and the Career & Internship Center. My work with both units is heavily operations-focused as I support many aspects of all programs and services. Even though I work mostly behind the scenes with budgets and the University’s various administrative systems, it is the same underlying passion for serving students that drives me forward in my work. Prior to joining UW, I worked at Shoreline Community College and North Seattle College with many non-traditional student populations.
Director, Career Center @ Engineering
Hi Huskies! I came to the University of Washington in May 2015, after a 17-year engineering career at Boeing. I’m a native Washingtonian and hold a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (Cal Poly) and a Master of Science in Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering (New Mexico State). I’m never far from a volleyball court & can be found either playing or coaching high school & club teams. I live in the Mill Creek area with my husband, two daughters and my 200 pairs of shoes.
Associate Director of the Career Center @ Engineering
I am the Associate Director of the Career Center @ Engineering at UW. I have a Masters in Student Development Administration from Seattle University and I attended Rutgers University for my undergraduate work. As Associate Director, I work with internships for engineering students and alumni opportunities for mentorship. I love showing students how to articulate their passions and experiences into strengths and skills to help them succeed in their future.
In my free time I teach dance cardio classes, captain an ultimate frisbee team and enjoy being active. I have lived in Seattle for 6 years after growing up on the east coast in New York and New Jersey.
As a Career Coach at the Career Center @ Engineering, I guide Engineering students in exploring and securing fulfilling careers and internships throughout their academic journey at UW. Previously, I worked at Columbia University’s Center for Career Education and also worked as a High School Mathematics teacher prior to my Higher Education career. I received bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from University of British Columbia and master’s degree in Higher and Postsecondary Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. I look forward to listening to your stories and learning about unique skills and strengths that you bring to the campus, as well as any career-related concerns and questions you may have!
