Born and raised in Portland, OR. I’ve had many jobs before ending up in nursing. I owned a used bicycle shop, was an electrician apprentice for a couple years, and then decided to go back to school for nursing. I started at Portland State University in 2006, got my pre-req’s done and felt like I still didn’t know anything. Because of this, I stuck around and finished my B.S. in Organismal Biology at PSU before applying to nursing school.
I’m a junior in the nursing program in Klamath Falls and am the Treasurer of our Student Nursing Association. In my off time I play music and, well…that’s about it. I play mandolin, guitar, and I just bought a banjo. Last year I found a group of old codgers that have bluegrass jams once a week and after a grueling Fall term I am finally getting back together with them. Gotta keep my chops up!
