How did you get interested in global issues?
Initially my love of history taught my about foreign countries and cultures but as those histories became more complex, my desire to understand current events grew. At the University of Oregon I studied International Studies, which complimented my love interest in current events, history and global issues. Now, I never turn down an opportunity to go abroad or chance to learn more about the world.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am eager to increase my impact by volunteering my time and writing abilities. Of the many causes I aspire to contribute to, poverty is a common denominator among them. I admire The Borgen Project’s unique approach to combating poverty and am excited to join the fight.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am an avid sailor and recently completed my first ocean passage from Mexico to French Polynesia. In Seattle I teach sailing and race in just about any weather, there is a lot of water here! Pizza, hammocks, spiral staircases and bookstores also make me very excited.
