Favorite DV Memory?
How to choose? Winter feast teacher performances, dressing up as Napoleon Bonaparte, finding ways to be comedic in videomaking, Hail to the Chief... maybe helping shave Mr. Millsap’s head for fundraising antics :)

What have you been doing since you graduated?
After graduating I worked at Explorit Science Center while attending Sac City for 3 years, before transferring to Portland State University and graduating 3 years later with a BS in Environmental Studies. Then I did two AmeriCorps service terms (think the domestic version of Peace Corps) in a position focused on advancing environmental equity. Now I work as Program Coordinator for a small nonprofit (I’m the only one on payroll!) implementing tree planting & environmental restoration projects, volunteer events, and community education, for a creek system that runs through a State Park in Portland!
