Antonia Keithahn (she/her/hers) joined Whitman College in 2015, and moved into her current position in 2017. She views her role within a social justice context and her long-term goal is to bring greater awareness to access barriers on our campus so that they can be acknowledged and dismantled. Antonia's background is in secondary education, having received a Master's in Education (in Curriculum and Instruction) from the University of Illinois in 2013. She also holds a BA in History from Reed College after a disastrous attempt at a combined Chemistry-Art major that lasted about a semester and a half before collapsing entirely. Away from the office, Antonia enjoys several hobbies including embroidery, roller derby, singing and playing guitar, intersectional feminism, and comfortable pants.

Janet Mallen (she/her/hers or they/them/theirs) says: "Hi! I am a Southern California native, and have lived in many places: all along the California Central Coast; Okinawa Japan; Portland, Oregon; and, most recently, Oxford, Ohio. Now, I am back in Walla Walla after a 5 year hiatus to join the team in the ARC. My main goal is to help Whitties thrive academically and to help remove any barriers to success. I bring experience with teaching, advising, work as a registrar, community building, and a passion for helping students tap into and grow their strengths. My ever-expanding education includes an AA from San Diego Mesa College, a BA in English from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a MS in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Miami University. I am a US Marine Corps veteran, and a proud parent. I love drinking good coffee, hiking, hanging out with friends, and traveling-I have wandered widely, and have more to see. I love learning!"
Administrative AssistantMemorial 325509-527-5213
I joined the ARC after moving to Walla Walla with my husband and daughter this summer. I grew up in the Seattle area, received a bachelor's degree in English from Whitworth College, moved to Colorado to attend graduate school at CU and Naropa University, and then worked for 33 years in Boulder County promoting health and inclusion for children and adults with developmental disabilities. I'm excited to be working in an assistant role for the ARC. My goal is to help support student learning in whatever way I can, as well as to to keep learning and challenging myself. Outside of the office I enjoy reading, gardening, yoga and dance. I'm especially fond of long walks and afternoon naps with my two dogs.
