Hafa Adai! I am a Program Manager for the Center for Leadership and Community Engagement. This is my eleventh year with Central Washington University, and I am so excited for what we have planned this year at the CLCE! Please stop in and let me know how things are going or if I can be of any assistance.

I'm originally from the small island of Guam, but moved to Ellensburg in 1998. I am married to my wonderful husband, Mark, who is an Assistant Professor in the PESH Department, and we are blessed with 3 energetic and healthy children - Miah, 16, Taylor, 10, and Chase, 9. Our children's soccer, basketball and volleyball practices and games have got our weekends and evenings pretty busy, but we also love reading books, playing board and card games and baking cookies!


I wish that you could achieve some great good for mankind, but have nobody know about it except you.~Anonymous

I’m a senior graduating with an Administrative Management specialization. I’m a down to earth kind of person who just goes with the flow. This is my second year working at the CLCE, but if anyone has ideas for potential program ideas, please come up and talk with me. Hope to see you during our events, but until then, cheerio.
