Hey-O! My name is Owen and I am the Resident Director of the Global Leadership Center. I graduated from Westmont College in 2021 with a History degree. I quickly jumped into a role on the Westmont Admissions team. Over the two years, I identified that I have a passion for the well-being of our students. This led me to complete a Master's degree in Student Affairs from Grand Canyon University which I completed in 2023.
As a Resident Director, I am excited to be in a space where I can find creative opportunities to combine the GLC's priorities of sustainability and having a global mindset with not only our residents but our Westmont community! Through mentorship, advocacy, and giving a space for "good vibes," I hope to create a sense of belonging for my residents. My hobbies include surfing, watching movies, drinking coffee, and cooking - which comes in handy in the GLC! If you also like some of these activities, let's do them together! If you are interested in other things, can you please bring me along? I'd love to learn what brings YOU joy! I'm looking forward to a great year!
