“While earning my degree in Anthropology/Sociology, EOU presented me with an opportunity to volunteer at an Oregon Youth Authority Correction Center. I volunteered as an art instructor, which gave me a springboard to continue this passion as an employee of the Union County Juvenile Department. Teaching a weekly art class is just one of the many exciting things I do as our county’s Juvenile Diversion Counselor. Furthermore, I was able to start part-time employment during my last term at EOU before graduating. This eventually led to the full-time permanent position I have today. EOU was instrumental in my success.”
