"With over 20 years of work to advance the opportunities and rights of immigrants, I landed at LCC’s Career Pathways in 2016 because I see education as a force for change - toward economic and social justice. I work here because I want to increase access to education and employment opportunities for immigrants, newcomers, and others with vibrant dreams. I'm here to help connect you to resources, to help define your journey, to not let anything that gets in the way stop you, and to cheer you on as you move forward. A win for you is a win for our community!"

"My name is Michael Walker, and I am a Human Service graduate here at Lane. My goal is to work with people who want to transition from one place in their life to another. This could be somebody coming out of high school to someone else learning how to retire. College is a wonderful environment created by those who want to grow."

"As a first-generation college student, I am familiar with the struggles and confusion so many students experience when navigating the complex waters of higher education. And as an educator with over 20 years’ experience working at colleges and universities in the United States and abroad, I am passionate about helping students explore their interests, meet their career and educational goals, and gain the tools they need for both short-term and long-term success, and to be lifelong learners."

"As a daughter of immigrant parents and first generation college student, I was very lost when I began my post secondary education journey but thanks to TRIO programs I was able to receive a lot of support/resources that set me up for success. Thus, I'm a huge advocate for holistic services as students navigate not only the complexities of higher education but their own lives. I also truly believe that affordable education is pivotal in addressing economic mobility for historically marginalized communities."
