She was very involved with the numbers side of things and found it challenging and exciting!

At Corban University she is involved with their Student Event Team, and performs many “real-world” projects in her classes. She also participates in many school events with her husband and friends. In her free time she enjoys spending family time with her husband, as well as playing and cuddling with her puppy Gunner.

Biographical Info

Don’s story begins, as so many of them do, in a city. In his case it was Salem, where he has learned to enjoy what the Willamette Valley offers. Fast travel, little congestion, and easy access to the outdoors has fostered an interest in sports, particularly sport shooting, motorcycling, and hiking. His high school days at Salem Academy were filled with a passion for both sports and academics, the latter of which continued into both his undergraduate degree in History at Corban University and his Masters in Teaching at Western Oregon.

Don and his wife Melissa continue to enjoy Salem and serving their church and the community together. His other interests include computer hardware, history, and philosophy (when he can find the time).

Biographical Info

I was born in California but spent most of my life growing up in Salem, OR and I loved living in the northwest. I grew up being very involved in sports and church. In high school is where I really found my interest in business. I was involved in DECA for three of my four years along with being on the basketball and golf teams. I went to Corban University to play golf and get my business degree and ended up adding accounting for a double major my junior year. The summer after I graduated I married my wonderful husband, Jared Rust, whose passion is soccer, although we met on the golf team at Corban. He is the Director of Coaching at CFC and is the Head Associate Coach at Willamette University. I have also coached basketball the past five years and was a small group leader for a group of middle school girls prior to coaching. I have loved being able to invest in girls at the high school age, which was something that was a big deal for me when I was their age. Now, my husband and I love spending time outside, whether that be playing golf, watching soccer, being at the dog park with our dogs, Sadie and Zizou, camping, or anything that involves coffee or a good glass of wine. We also like being with our friends having fun and relaxing.
