I see myself as a bridge-builder. Each day I look forward to new opportunities to dream and learn with students, giving them tools to discover ways of connecting with Christ through service now and beyond into their careers.

My favorite project so far was Service Day. Seeing 700+ students, faculty, and staff coming together to work with our community was so rewarding.

I feel blessed with the responsibility to raise four young boys with the love of my life. Some of our favorite things to do are taking over the cul-de-sac to play a hockey game and summer nights camping in the Blues.

I help support our amazing student employees and I manage CHE projects. I am excited at the chance to work on the CHE signature project, Blue Zones, and an initiative to develop more service-learning opportunities on campus.

My favorite volunteer project so far has been the Love Heals Clinic. It was incredible to see the impact that our generous volunteers made on our community.

I haven't been working with the CHE for long, but I enjoyed helping with the COVID Care projects last spring and planning the CHE Summit this summer! I am excited to help plan the tri-college service day this year!


I enjoy hanging out with friends, playing volleyball, working out, showing horses, and exploring nature.

Nicolas Marcondes

CARE Weekend Coordinator


  • Health Science, Pre-Med Class of 2022
  • I work with clubs and local organizations to provide community service opportunities for anyone who wants to serve.

My favorite volunteer project is the free intelligent conversations because we go out to the community and are able to hear stories that on a normal basis would never hear.
My hobbies include playing the drums and bass, exercising, and practicing mental self-care.

Keziah Perez

CARE Weekend Coordinator (Portland Campus)


  • Nursing, Class of 2023
  • Community Action and Relief Experience (CARE): plans outreach projects and provides service opportunities for students to participate in

One of my favorite service projects would be going to downtown Walla Walla to have "Free Intelligent Conversations" and handing out flowers to people on the street. Random acts of kindness and intentionality are so powerful.

I enjoy camping, kayaking, singing, and hiking (especially to waterfalls). I am obsessed with worship music and very passionate about serving people. Fun fact: I am a 6w5 on the enneagram. If you have any ideas for community outreach, I'd love to connect with you!

I loved a service project where we went out into the community and did random acts of kindness. We bought people coffee and took flowers to the rehab centers and the retirement home.

My personal hobbies include singing, painting, boating, and traveling. An interesting fact about me is that I have sung in a choir at Carnegie Hall!
