Dear Willamette University,

I am writing in reply to the Pacific Northwest Artists Processing Archivist in Salem, Oregon. I have graduated Oregon State University as a liberal arts student with a bachelor in Fine Arts and Psychology and moving to Eugene to attend the University of Oregon in Fall 2019 to earn my masters in family therapy.

I have experience with the Counseling and Psychological Services on campus; I was in charge of networking, outreach, and leadership. During my time in the office, I frequented our tabling sessions to directly reach students on campus and have them participate in activities. I was also in charge of a project called the "Mental Health Unity Pledge", in which I took charge of finding student leaders on campus to have them sign our pledge to speak out against stigma and discrimination towards mental illness. I researched online our athletes, advocates, and researchers, scheduled appointments and asked for quotes about why they find mental health important. I believe my work in this project from start to finish, including a display in the arts center and on campus, demonstrate my competitive drive to do the best, reaching out to over 61 people on campus during the month of April, determination, communication and personal skills, leadership, take charge personality, and business mindset.

During my life as a worker, I have found myself in a variety of jobs including work at Oregon State University, student assistant at the Counseling and Psychological services, and catering. I have also been a studio manager at the art therapy cooperative in Boulder, CO, Benny's Handler, an in-home care aid for the elderly, a barista, a camp counselor, and swim instructor. From these experiences, I am effective with people, understanding needs and helping them be met, as a team, and as an individual. I believe that, there are always answers to a questions and I will go out of my way to figure it out with them to make sure they are satisfied with the outcome, or at the very least, the effort.

I believe my work with Counseling and Psychological Services qualify me to work with INNEX. I look forward to communicating how my skills can be of value.
