After staying home to raise my two small children, I returned to the workforce in 2015. I restarted my career as an administrative assistant with Greater Portland Inc before transitioning to Clackamas Workforce Partnership in 2017. I have experience in public relations, marketing, multi-family and low-income housing, development, fundraising and administrative support.

I often joke, I know a little bit about a lot of things. I have two roles at CWP, but I wear many hats within each of those functions. I support our Executive Director, her ever complicated schedule, and help to keep the office and those I work with running in the relative same direction. At the same time, I serve as the Communications Coordinator, running all our social media platforms, support our website and handle most of our graphic design. If you need to make a presentation or brochure pretty, I am your person!

Respect. Willingness to fail and learn from your mistakes, honesty, and trust.

Do the Dork Diaries and the Magical Misfits count? I do not have much time to read.

My husband and I are big foodies, so we love trying all the different food carts and restaurants Portland has to offer. I love to cook big meals for a lot of people and host friends and family in my backyard. I have recently decided to get healthier, grinding it out at Orangetheory, pushing my push pace higher each week with a (someday) goal of a 10k. I love a great hike, full of misery, allergies, but amazing views at the end. (see photo below for the view results). And finally, spending time with my family and friends – very much looking forward to the return of “normal” in the coming months.

I can wiggle my ears without using my hands. So can my Dad. It is a fun trick at parties.
