She enjoys working with all students and has a special interest in working with first-year students, and under-represented populations. While Holly wears many hats at WSU Everett, one of her favorite roles is being able to serve as the faculty advisor for the WSU Everett Society of Women Engineers.

I have been in Higher Education for 7 years, starting my work as an Academic Advisor and moving into Student Affairs just over a year ago. At WSU Everett I oversee Student Success and Involvement which includes Career Services, Student CARE Network, International Students, Student Success Initiatives, Community Standards and much more! My favorite part of working in higher education is the students!
I enjoy seeing them through their educational journey, graduate and be successful in their chosen fields! I hold a Bachelor of Science in Developmental Psychology and a bachelor of Arts in Children’s Studies from Eastern Washington University and a Masters of Education, Adult and Higher Education from Western Washington University.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and reading!

I am the admissions counselor here at WSU Everett and a proud WSU alumni (Murrow College Class of 2016). I joined WSU Everett in March 2020, right before the COVID pandemic, but I love the challenge it has presented in helping students navigate the admissions process. As a Latino (si quieres, hablamos en Español), former non-traditional student, my experiences in higher education allow me to better understand a variety of unique situations. Outside of work, I have lots of hobbies, from graphic design to sports, movies, and video games. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you achieve your goals here at WSU Everett.
I joined the WSU team in 2014 on a part-time basis while earning a baccalaureate degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. In 2016 I was hired on as a full-time member of your student affairs team. I assist with room reservations and financial aid questions among other topics. I look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
