I chose Central because...

It feels like a home. I always feel like I am part of a close-knit community and a large family here. The campus is large enough so I don't know everyone personally, but small enough to where I recognize a lot of people I am not personally connected to. I have a sense of belonging and that I am an important part of the community here.

What is the best part about your job in Visitation?

The people I work with are amazing and fun! I also get to meet so many new people through my job! I have had new students come to Central and recognize me from being a tour guide and it is great! I have made friends both with my coworkers and with the wonderful people I get to give tours to!

My favorite thing about Ellensburg is...

how beautiful it is and its history. Ellensburg is such a beautiful town with the kindest people! It gets all 4 seasons and each one is absolutely gorgeous! From the myriad of colors in the fall, to the winter wonderland, the spring flowers, and the bright sunny hills. This paired with the historical downtown buildings create for a stunning view day in and day out.

My favorite class/professor...

is band and horn ensemble. I love my professors and my peers whom I get to perform with. I love these because in college the experience is so much different than that of high school. Everyone truly longs to be there and is working hard to make each other sound good. It goes beyond yourself and becomes about the product that you are creating as one and the process and journey you are all going on to get there. It is as close to magic as I think I will ever get. When we perform our concerts I am immersed in a euphoric state. I feel so honored to be able to play with my friends as well as under such incredible and knowledgeable professors whom I have the utmost respect for.
