Originally from Minnesota, I first moved to Portland in 2006 to attend Lewis & Clark College. I left for a few years to attend grad school at the University of Maryland, and returned in 2013 to settle in Portland. I worked at Powell’s Books for four years, but eventually decided to move on from retail. I started working at Leonard Adams Insurance as a temp in February 2019 and was permanently hired in May. As a Commercial Lines Assistant, I issue certificates, process endorsements, and communicate with many of our insurance partners. In my spare time, I like to read fantasy, science fiction, history, sociology, and anthropology.
