Getting to Know Danny

Education: B.A. in Business Management, Whitworth University; M.A. in Higher Education, Geneva College

Hometown: Sunnyside, WA

Role in office? My main responsibilities include working with WAC (Westmont Activities Council), Spring Sing, Video Team, Clubs, and leadership development.

Favorite thing about Westmont? Westmont is a very special place that values holistic education and the pursuit of excellence. I enjoy working with incredible faculty and staff and am continually surprised by the caliber of our students. (And the fact that we're located between the mountains and the ocean isn't hurting things...)

Favorite college memory? Serving as Student Body President during my senior year of college was a definite highlight, but I would be remiss if I didn't mention all the memories during my sophomore year. I lived in the quad in Mac Hall and had a year full of adventure.

Favorite book(s) in your library: Way too many to mention here, but some of my favorites include A Prayer for Owen Meany, Atlas Shrugged, and Crossing to Safety.

What makes you laugh? My nieces and nephews, Modern Family, Parks and Rec, two buddies from graduate school, and my backpacking brothers.

What is your favorite thing to do away from Westmont? Hiking. Backpacking. Working on home improvement projects. Visiting family and friends. Reading. Re-watching episodes of The West Wing.
