How long have you been at SPU?

Since 2007 as staff, but since 2004 as a student.

Tell us about a memorable good day at work.

I can’t think of one right now…there’s many good ones throughout the years.

How does your faith impact your work?

I am far from being perfect at making this happen all the time, but I do believe and try to live out my faith in a way where it is intertwined with all of my work.  To me, it influences how I interact with my colleagues, the broader community that I serve, and how I plan projects and look at course materials.

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific University.

I came to SPU through some extra nudging from my parents and extended family. I wanted to try something different and Seattle was a great place to try that -– I had a lot of family in the area (including just up the hill), so it seemed like a good choice.

As for how I made my way to my current position … During the summer between my junior and senior year, I was encouraged by other full-time staff in CIS to apply for my first position, so I became a full-time student and employee in 2007.  During my time in CIS, I developed an interest in education and technology, so when an opportunity to join ETM became available in 2016, I took the chance and applied.

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

This sounds cheesy, but I like being with my family, I have two young children (so tons of fun and energy!). Regardless of how we spend time together, I find that time together is the most encouraging and enjoyable time of my day.

What’s something that few people know about you?

I’m a third generation SPU-er and my mother was a Homecoming princess in the '70s.

What’s your favorite part about your job?

I enjoy the problem-solving aspect of working through complex issues. But to me, nothing compares to working with faculty to make technological issues less stressful and less complicated. 

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you?

In terms of work, that I welcome questions, requests, and feedback that faculty have for ETM.  Please feel free to interrupt me and drop by the ETM Office. I’d love to see you and work with you.

Anything else you would like to share?

As an adjunct said to me this fall, “I don’t always remember how to do things in Canvas, but I remember you.” 

I think that sums up how I see my role in ETM.  It’s OK if you don’t know Canvas or the technical ins and outs of other systems that ETM administers. That’s my job. So if at the end of the day, if all you remember is me, you’re still going to get your problems solved – and that’s still good.

Hometown: Jos, Nigeria

How long have you been at SPU?

Since September 2017.

Tell us about a memorable good day at work.

It’s too hard to choose just one. I’ve had a quite a number of fond moments here at SPU. I’ve enjoyed laughing over lunch with my colleagues, making music with my students, praying and worshiping Jesus with student worship leaders and SMC’s in Alexander hall, and sitting on Kelsey Rorum's couch and processing my life. They’ve all been amazing!

How does your faith impact your work?

As a worship leader on campus, I know my faith has to impact everything I do. In fact, anything done separate from my faith is not part of my job description. As a minister on campus, I minister from faith, that’s what I do. 

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific University.

Well, I was laid off due to departmental restructuring at the Christian college I worked at on the East Coast. God and google led me to this position at SPU. Seattle was the last place I thought I'd be, but God sent me here even though it meant getting engaged and planning a wedding bi-coastally.

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

Hanging out and having fun with my husband.

What’s something that few people know about you?

I have been married three times to the same man. Come and ask me for details and pictures.

What’s your favorite part about your job?

Sitting with students and having deep, meaningful, transformative conversations on my couch in the office.

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you?

I am proudly Nigerian; I love Jesus and I am passionate about helping others encounter the tangible presence of God especially through multi-ethnic worship.

Anything else you would like to share?

I am an actress and a recording artist and will like to do more of that at some point in the near future.

Sam Davis

Senior Design Manager

Hometown: Edmonds, Washington

How long have you been at SPU? 

Sixish years.

Tell us about a memorable good day at work. 

We played an office game of "Heads Up" during our recent Camp Casey staff retreat. There were many enthusiastic animal impersonations, including one of a koala that will go down in UC legend.

How does your faith impact your work? 

I believe in a good Creator who designed us to work, and gave each of us unique gifts and talents. No job or vocation is too small, and all work done well honors him. I try and remember this in the day-to-day routines that can get tiresome.

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific? 

Attending SPU (graduated 2008) and working in University Communications as an intern my senior year had a minor influence on that journey. I was thrilled to come back to UC when the opportunity arose, because working here had set the bar too high and no other job or work environment measured up (not to mention the office had an epic glow-up since the dreary cubicle days).

How I ended up at SPU initially? It was close to home and my best friend was attending as well … all the key points of making a wise decision concerning higher education. SPU also had my intended major of pre-veterinary medicine, and now I’m a graphic designer! But that’s a story for another day.

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

This will be of no surprise to anyone that knows me even a little: Crossfit. I won’t wax poetic about it here — and trust me, I could — but we just don’t have that kind of time or space. I will say I wake up at 4:30 a.m. to make it fit into my schedule, and that is as absurd to me as it is to anyone.

I also believe winning friends and influencing people can be accomplished by being interesting and kind or by baking delicious things and sharing. I choose to bake.

I have the greatest family and treasure any time I get to spend with them. Not to brag, but my mom and I bought laser tag sets for our all-family Thanksgiving vacation. We’re that cool.

What's something that few people know about you?

Did you ever see the googley eyes on the amazing droopy tree in the Weter garden? I PUT THEM THERE. His name was Harold, and he lived a good life.

What’s your favorite part of your job? 

When we have food in the kitchen and a well-stocked candy bowl.

Oh yeah, and my colleagues. They are the best, hands down, no contest, don’t even try and compete.

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you? 

I do crossfit.

I’m kidding, I am terribly well-rounded and have tons of things I’d like you to know about me … I just need a minute. I’ll … get back to you on that.

Anything else you'd like to share?

Only my life quote:

“Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do criticize him, you'll be a mile away and have his shoes.” — Steve Martin

Dyana Herron

Field Placement and Professional Partnership Coordinator
School of Education
Hometown: Cleveland, Tennessee

 Learn more about Dyana ...

How long have you been at SPU? 

Seven years. (Note: Later this month Dyana is leaving her position at SPU. Staff Council wishes her well and thanks her for seven years of service.)

Tell us about a memorable good day at work. 

One of my favorite days at work each year is the Education Job Fair, at which we host HR staff from 35 or so school districts in Washington state. It’s fun to see our students dressed up, resumes in hand, ready to connect with employers, and step at last into the teaching/school counseling/school administration jobs they have trained for.

Plus, the bacon-wrapped chicken from catering is always a huge hit and afterward we give away our dozens of helium balloons to students walking around campus.

How does your faith impact your work? 

The story of Christ’s life is one of radical love and inclusivity, and the reversal of traditional power structures. This model can be directly applied to the field of education and the responsibility that educators have to serve all students and communities, and to try to disrupt and dismantle inequitable systems.

In our society having “power” often means hoarding or holding onto resources — whether those are knowledge, money, or time. Being an educator requires constantly giving away those resources to others. I believe the example of Christ tells us this is how our power is to be used, and that the result is more for all.

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific? 

I am an alum of SPU’s MFA in Creative Writing program. I was planning to go to law school after undergrad — had taken the LSATs and everything — but a friend of mine from college in Tennessee who came to SPU for a PhD in clinical psychology saw a poster for this brand-new writing program, hanging in Marston and emailed me about it.

Writing has always been my first love, so I applied one week before the deadline and was accepted. I lived in Tennessee while completing but moved to Seattle after I graduated, and took over coordination of the program.

That was my first job at SPU out of five positions (four as staff and one as adjunct faculty) spanning seven years. In a nice twist of fate my college friend is now a professor in the Psychology Department and our families live down the street from one another (shout out to Dr. Jake Bentley).

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

Anyone who knows me even a little likely knows I belong to a community garden. Seattle has a great community garden program (called “P-Patch”), and I belong to the one in Interbay. It’s just south of the driving range on 15th and is a great place to sit and stroll if you’re ever looking to take a sack lunch off campus.

Just don’t pick anything out of the plots, because the gardeners get really cranky about that! I recently saw a sign posted that read: “I know the person who stole from this vegetable patch believes in God. What have you done???” I think that’s an overreaction, but do have a new level of appreciation for how much effort it takes to grow food.

What's something that few people know about you?

I have a keen interest in employment law and human resources. I am an on-call copyeditor for World Vision. I am a Pushcart-nominated poet. I make a mean buttermilk biscuit.

What’s your favorite part of your job? 

Hands down, the people I work with. Educators tend to be hard working, fun, collaborative people who believe that individual efforts (such as those made by teachers in the classroom) contribute to real, systemic change. I don’t always feel like the world works that way, so am often buoyed by the optimism of my colleagues.

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you? 

I am a passionate advocate for prison reform and better reentry systems and support for returning citizens and their families.

Anything else you'd like to share?

Yes, and this is very important. Two years ago I won second place in the year-end Staff Council social pie baking contest, and I am still a little miffed that I lost out to Clint Kelly’s bourbon pecan pie, because no matter how tender your crust or how precise your lattice, it is impossible for a fruit pie to beat out a boozy sugar pie. Especially when it’s made by Clint Kelly, who as I understand it is a wonderful person in addition to being a wonderful baker.

Assistant Director of Learning Services
Center for Learning

Hometown: Seattle, Washington

 Learn more about Mary Jayne ...

How long have you been at SPU? 

26 years.

Tell us about a memorable good day at work. 

The most memorable days are the days when I have meeting after meeting with students — training tutors, mentoring BioCORE Scholar peer leaders, coaching students facing academic challenges — and leave my office believing that what I offered has contributed in some way to their growth and learning.

How does your faith impact your work? 

I do my best to show God’s love to students and stand with them in the midst of the successes and challenges they encounter. I know how much God’s love, reflected to me by the people in my life, has positively shaped who I am. Partnering with other faculty and staff, I am grateful to be able to do the same for our students.

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific? 

After finishing graduate school and working for two years at Houghton College in Western New York, I was hoping to work at a CCCU school in a more urban setting where at least one of my college friends lived. SPU was a perfect fit!

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

I am a docent at the Seattle Art Museum and enjoy helping elementary and high school students feel comfortable engaging with art.

What's something that few people know about you?

I grew up on a small farm in rural Michigan. Learning to ride a bike when you lived on a dirt road was not easy!

What’s your favorite part of your job? 

Collaborating with others (peer leaders, faculty, staff) to create effective learning opportunities and empowering students to learn and grow.

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you? 

I love to learn.

Anything else you'd like to share?

I am grateful for all of the great people who I have worked with over the years at SPU and for the meaningful opportunities I have been given to walk beside college students.

Jake Carlson

Associate Director of Undergraduate Programs
School of Business, Government, and Economics

Hometown: Kansas City, Missouri

 Learn more about Jake ...

How long have you been at SPU? 

Five years.

Tell us about a memorable good day at work. 

A good day at work for me is when I get to work with a variety of students, staff, and faculty in diverse settings. A day in which I get to meet with students in my office about registration, teach in the classroom about Christian Scripture, coordinate with my good friends in Demaray Hall, and lead an info session for prospective students is a good day.

How does your faith impact your work? 

I’ve been fortunate enough to have a faith modeled for me that embraces curiosity over certainty. Inherent to asking a question is the assumption that the answer matters. When one questions everything, it’s impossible to find anything simply ordinary. This makes me a “joy” to work with on committees.

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific? 

I wish I could point to a single piece of my life journey that brought me to SPU, but in reality it was a mixture of people, events, and circumstances. At risk of neglecting all of the other factors, I’ll give just one piece of that journey – Christina Longcor teaching me about “transferrable skills.”

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

Not work! Rest, explore, play.

What's something that few people know about you?

Every day I take a Swedish fika. Google it.

What’s your favorite part of your job? 

The interactions with students, staff, and faculty. If I were only interacting with Banner and Outlook all day, I would go insane — mainly due to Banner.

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you? 

That I care.

Anything else you'd like to share?

I’d like to share an office with Damon Smith Jr. but we wouldn’t get anything done …

How long have you been at SPU? 

A little over a year.

Tell us about a memorable good day at work. 

The opportunity to experience the excitement alongside students who are newly admitted into our MFT graduate program is certainly one of my favorite times of the year.

It’s wonderful to witness someone’s hard work come to fruition and watching them take those first steps of the grad school journey into the next stages of their career!

How does your faith impact your work? 

I’d like to think my faith impacts my work by deeply caring about the people I work alongside and the students our program supports. I certainly hope I come across as compassionate in this way.

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific? 

I graduated from SPU in 2013 and had the wonderful opportunity to work as a peer career advisor while on campus in the Center for Career and Calling. As a student and student employee, I always felt SPU was a special place. I knew I’d like to end up back on campus again. Sure enough, here I am!

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

I love taking my puppy, Skye, to the dog park with my husband. It’s always incredibly entertaining — and muddy!

What's something that few people know about you?

My husband and I happened to be in Ireland in the midst of a hurricane back in 2017. Luckily, we squeezed in the Cliffs of Moher before the storm hit. It had been over 60 years since Ireland’s last hurricane. It was quite the unexpected adventure.

What’s your favorite part of your job? 

Building relationships with prospective students and supporting them throughout the beginning, middle, and final stages of their application and decision-making processes. I also thoroughly enjoy interacting with our current students and celebrating their tremendous accomplishments.

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you? 

I like to move past small talk and dive into deeper conversations quickly.

Anything else you'd like to share?

If I could have a cup of coffee with anyone, it would be Abraham Lincoln.

How long have you been at SPU? 

Two years and eight months.

Tell us about a memorable good day at work. 

Having the opportunity to participate in Ivy Cutting the past two years and Graduation last year have each been a highlight and a true privilege. I loved the interaction with graduates, their families and staff – celebrating long-standing traditions that mean so much to the SPU community.

How does your faith impact your work? 

Honestly? In my work I feel like I have so many details to coordinate without any actual control over the outcome that I find myself praying over many of the projects I work on!

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific? 

I earned my undergraduate degree from Judson Baptist College, which closed shortly after I graduated due to financial difficulties. Several of my friends had transferred to SPU and when I earned an MEd in higher education/student personnel a few years later, I had hoped to someday work at SPU.

Years passed as I worked in fundraising and marketing for nonprofit orgs. I was feeling God’s nudge to shift my career. This led me to apply for my current role. In the busyness of life as I supported and raised my family, I had actually forgotten about my dream to work at SPU but God hadn’t!

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work? 

I love hiking and, since moving to Seattle from Bainbridge Island three years ago, have enjoyed “urban hiking” with my best friend and husband, Al, as a way to get to know different neighborhoods. A perfect day for us would involve “hiking” to a coffee spot where the barista does not ask “what size?” when we order our cappuccinos, lingering over a good book, lunch in a scenic spot with lots of walking to, from and between destinations.

What’s something that few people know about you? 

I’m good with animals … one example is that I taught my cat, Pelly, to walk on a treadmill.

What’s your favorite part of your job? 

Interacting with SPU students is my favorite part of my job. I love hearing about the great things they are doing and planning to do.  I am inspired and energized by conversations with them.

In connecting SPU supporters with the students who receive the scholarships they support, I routinely ask students to write thank you letters, share about their lives, and attend gatherings with donors. I am astounded by the gracious response of students as they agree to add more to their already overflowing schedules. The quality of students at SPU is remarkable.

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you? 

I am fascinated by how God has made each of us with different passions, gifts, and directions. One of my goals for 2019 has been to learn about the Enneagram (Richard Rohr style through Suzanne Stabile) and through this journey, I am discovering so much about how God has made me and how I can become a better person. I love talking about this with friends who also are interested in learning about their motivations. Yet another way to encourage one another to grow toward what God wants for our lives!

Anything else you'd like to share?

I’m grateful for SPU and continually impressed by the students. I love the passionate pursuit for Christ in their lives and the courage exhibited as they ask tough questions. God is big enough for all our questions!

How long have you been at SPU? 

One year in May.

Tell us about a memorable good day at work. 

Not to be cheesy, but every day in the office is a good day! I immensely enjoy working with everyone here at SPU; it truly is a “grace-filled community.” The faculty in both my departments have gone out of their way to make me feel welcome, and my fellow staff members have been graciously patient and encouraging as I learned the ropes at SPU. I did not have admin experience before I came to this job, and it has been fun learning new skill sets and knowledge.

How does your faith impact your work? 

My faith is the reason I applied to SPU. I had wanted to work in an authentic Christian community and SPU is exactly that! I wholeheartedly believe in our mission of providing a Christian liberal arts education; it was during my college years on a Christian campus that I encountered Christ, both in the classroom and in the professors and students. It radically changed my life. My university experience gives me an understanding of how crucial a Christian education are for college people. This appreciation imbues meaning into day-to-day tasks of my work.

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific? 

Before I came to SPU I was in the food industry and I desired to leave it. A friend saw the ad on the SPU website and encouraged me to apply – and I’m very glad I did!

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work? 

I am a reader, and I love discussing and chewing on ideas and having (most often impassioned) discussions with my friends and family. Being in the mountains is my other favorite thing.

What’s something that few people know about you? 

I have four sisters who are my dearest friends and the joy of my life. Three of them live on Bainbridge Island, and I feel like I won the lottery in having such a close family.

What’s your favorite part of your job? 

My favorite part of my job is being in an academic environment. My college experience was highly enjoyable, and it's interesting to see what makes a university run.

And it has been highly enjoyable learning so many new things (from generic admin duties to SPU’s internal workings) in this position. 

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you? 

In an ideal world, I would be a student for life. I would love to go back to school and continue studying the humanities.

Really any day that I get to assist people that are in a difficult situation. The recent arson fire in November and other events that happened that night are memories that I will hold for a long time. 

How does your faith impact your work? 

My faith impacts my job by helping to keep my priorities aligned and my interactions positive throughout my daily work, which can include interacting with difficult/mentally ill people.

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific? 

I am the third of my siblings to attend and graduate SPU, so I have been able to be a part of the community here for many years. After finishing the majority of my degree and walking at graduation in 2016, I worked at C.C. Filson in Sodo, and chose to come back to SPU and work with OSS in order to get experience for my future career plans. 

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work? 

Some of my favorite things to do when I’m not at work are to spend time with my amazing girlfriend and my friends/family.

What’s something that few people know about you?

What’s your favorite part of your job? 

My favorite part about my job is that every day has the possibility to be different than the day before. I’m often times not confined to a desk and am out and about on campus.

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you? 

I am someone that tries to see the world and the realities of daily life from many different points of view and I like being around multiple different types of people.

How long have you been at SPU? 

Since November 1, 2016.

Tell us about a memorable day at work. 

My work days are all “good days” filled with laughter, camaraderie, and productivity. Beyond the day-to-day office routine, I cherish the times when our entire campus gathers together for learning and fellowship. The day we spent with social justice activist Bryan Stevenson was a deeply enriching experience that continues to influence and enhance how I conduct myself. 

How does your faith impact your work? 

“God grant that I may never live to be useless!” John Wesley

Growing up in the Methodist church, I observed our large congregation’s generous and consistent gifting of talent and time. This fully informed my work ethic. We’re created to be useful, and God wants us to realize and engage our unique gifts. My role at SPU is satisfying because it exercises a wide range of strengths God created in me as I work side by side with hard-working, faithful, and talented people.  

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific? 

In 2011, we moved from a sweet 1930s' farmhouse on 20+ acres to a tiny condo in a modern building so our daughter could pursue a career in ballet. I took a job in admissions and communications for a small, private high school, and quickly transformed from Country Mouse to City Mouse. (My friends were astounded.) Seattle’s independent school scene is fiercely competitive soafter devoting several years to admissions efforts that depleted meI decided to seek more nourishing work. I was disciplined and determined in my job search, and it took me a very long time to find the right fit. The moment I read the posting for the School of Psychology, Family, and Community position — I knew it was the one. I feel so fortunate to spend my days in this positive, purposeful, Christ-centered work environment.

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work? 

If I’m not at work, I’m probably playing with paint, paper, scissors, and glue, or exploring Seattle like a tourist.. 

What’s something that few people know about you? 

I majored in Broadcast Production and have a master’s in Media Management. I occasionally blog at brendabakerproductions.blogspot.com. I’m really inconsistent about posting things, and my mom may be the only one who reads it, but it’s still fun! My fantasy jobs would be doing stand-up comedy or taking over Martha Stewart’s homemaking empire when she retires.

What’s your favorite part of your job? 

My job entails a wide range of tasks and responsibilities so every new day is interesting. Variety keeps things lively, fresh, and requires skill. I do like a challenge!

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you? 

I want to be helpful. If there is a piano to be moved, I’m not just going to pick up the bench.

Anything else you would like to share?

In my previous job, on a particularly discouraging day, I remember saying, “I just want to work with people who love each other!” I feel loved at SPU, and I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to be here.

Tell us about a memorable good day at work. 

I think the most memorable day for me was my first time going to the Blakely Island Research Station. The opportunity to work there for the weekend was an amazing experience. It was a lot of fun taking students into the outdoors and for some it was their first time leaving the city streets and taking on dirt trails. 

How does your faith impact your work? 

For me the ability to work with people that have the same core beliefs and are working towards the same goals is fulfilling. 

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific? 

God has opened and closed many doors for me to direct me to where I am today. I’m just now am in the part of my story where you don’t know how its going to end up.

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work? 

When I’m not at SPU I’m working a second job. When I’m not working I’m taking my dog on a hike or walk. I really enjoy the outdoors and try to spend as much time as possible exploring new areas.
