What drew me to work at Evergreen

I believe in Evergreen Counseling’s mission and believe that my broad range of skills would support the team and center.

The best part of my job

Ensuring that systems are working efficiently and maintaining a safe and welcoming environment.

How I spend my free time

During my free time, I love exploring the outdoors and spending time with my two daughters, two dogs and two cats, dancing, getting lost in the woods, and swimming in the ocean. In addition, volunteering for the Marine Mammal Center and Yggdrasil Urban Wildlife Rescue.

Favorite quote

“Wild Geese

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”
