Sydney grew up in Beaverton and is excited to be back in Oregon after attending Pacific Lutheran University and Central Washington University. She graduated from Central Washington University with her Master’s degree in Family & Child Life this past summer. Sydney enjoys establishing relationships with middle school students and recognizes the importance of reducing stress and anxiety in a school environment. She is passionate about supporting students in ways that work for them, as each child is different. In her free time, Sydney enjoys outdoor activities which include running, bike riding, and skiing. At the end of the day, she finds joy in playing with her dogs, Stella and Basin. With the combination of her education and faith, Sydney looks forward to supporting the students of Valley Catholic as they navigate middle school.
