Spotlight – Welcome Our New Staff!

Tamara Long, Assistant Director of Admissions for Campus Visits

tamaraadmBorn and raised in Seattle, Tamara Long graduated from Seattle University with a B.A. in Psychology and got her M.S. in School Psychology from Miami University, Ohio. Prior to working at UW, Tamara spent 8 years working in the admissions office at Seattle University (4 of those years were spent running their campus visit program). Outside of work, she likes to wander aimlessly around Seattle (and go on Target runs), especially when she is wearing her Fitbit. As a native Washingtonian, Tamara’s goal is to visit more state parks, go on a lot of hikes, and enjoy the beauty of the Northwest.

Dan Stacknik, Financial Aid Counselor

danosfaDan Stacknik is from the Chicago suburbs, moved out to Seattle in May of 2015.   Graduated from Northern Michigan University in December 2010 with a B.S. in Management, returned to Illinois, and ultimately entered into the world of Financial Aid back in January of 2012.  While at NMU, Dan would spend 100+ days on snow at the local ski hill as an instructor, but mostly for fun.  Seattle’s location near real mountains was a factor in wanting to move out west.  Being from Chicago, he is a lifelong Bears and Blackhawks fan – though Dan does appreciate the Seahawks. Any team that normally beats Green Bay is good in Dan’s book.

Millais Tsang, Admissions Counselor

img_0030_millais_29991968433_oMillais Tsang graduated from UW in 2016! Millais majored in Cellular, Developmental, and Molecular biology with a minor in Education, Learning and Society. He worked in the admissions office as a student for the front desk for about two years and loved the experience so much he just had to come back. He grew up in the South Seattle/Renton Area and enjoys basketball, sunsets, and long walks on the beach. His long term plans are to become a high school science teacher to help support students in both science learning as well as getting into college (hopefully UW). Go Dawgs!
