Meet the Staff

Lindsey Morris

I have worked at Green River since 2007 in various positions. I started as a student in the CLEO program, then continued working part-time in Running Start while I completed my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. After learning that wasn’t the right career for me, I started my Green River career in Recruitment & Outreach. From my experience in Outreach, I developed a passion for student access and helping students succeed. I earned her master’s degree in 2012 and became an advisor in Running Start in fall 2013. I also fill my weekends training for half marathons and spending time with my two boys.

Natalie Ramsey

I completed high school at Everett Community College as an adult student and continued on with an Associate degree program before transferring to the UW to study Art. I  continued to study Art at Parson’s School of Design in New York before returning to Seattle to complete a Masters in Education at Antioch University. I have worked in a variety of educational settings throughout my career including: behavioral health, social services and K-12 education in schools. I live with my granddaughter in Tacoma where I am restoring a Victorian house in the Hilltop neighborhood and working in my art studio.

Kyle Stevenson

I began working at Green River College in 2017 as an adjunct instructor in the Social Science Division. I joined the Running Start Office in 2021. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Gonzaga University and have a master’s degrees from the University of Oregon and the University of California Riverside. I love the opportunity to do long-term planning with Running Start students and see how plans change or crystalize as students navigate their path at Green River and beyond. I love being outdoors with my family and watching my favorite sports teams.

Devan Bickham

Hello! My name is Devan. I was born in Hammond Louisiana and raised in West/South Seattle. I thoroughly enjoy weight lifting, video games, and drive-in movies. If I don't make you laugh within 5 mins of us meeting then I'm doing something wrong. I'm an extremely nice guy so don't be afraid to reach out if you need anything!

Rosaline Palaita

My name is Rosaline and I serve our Running Start students as the front desk lead.  Before joining our Running Start Team, I began my journey with GRC via our Kent Campus as a Program Coordinator and have had the honor of working with students since 2017 here at Green River College.  During my free time I love spending time with my family, watching football and trash talking Seahawks fans as a San Francisco 49er Faithful! #GoNiners 

Victoria Chandler

I grew up in the Auburn community. I have worked with students in the Kent and Auburn School Districts and community since 2007 in various supportive roles. Some of my experiences include office support, being a marching band coach, and a school bus driver to name a few. I completed my bachelor's degree recently from one of Green River's BAS programs. When I am not at work, I will be out hiking on trails, playing tabletop games with friends, out in my garden, or playing musical instruments with my friends.

Loree Rhyne

Hi! My name is Loree Rhyne. I was born and raised in South Korea, went to college in Alabama, and am now very happy to call Washington my home. I have worked at Green River since 2022 and joined the Running Start team in 2024. In my free time, I really love reading, traveling, tabletop gaming, and spending time with my husband and our two cats.

Jenny Irwin

Hello! I joined Running Start in 2022. But I learned about it much earlier when my own kids attended Green River in the Running Start Program. Previously I was a computer programmer, a paraeducator in special education and in an elementary library. I love reading, cats, spending time in nature, and yarn/fiber arts such as knitting, spinning yarn and weaving.

Nehha Hussain

Nehha Hussain

Hello, I am a Running Start Program Coordinator. Before GRC I worked at Highline College as a Career Consultant for Career and Transfer. I am currently a student at CWU pursuing a Bachelor’s in psychology. I was once a running start student at Highline, and now I work in the running start office. Kinda cool. I have a little black cat named Gio. I like all things food; I am always hungry. When you drop by our office, I’ll be the first person you see behind the desk.
