Oregon grown. Community Organizer. My career spans multiple venues and circumstances, from volunteer community advocate to TV writer and producer (and everything in between).
For many years, I worked as a producer and assignment editor for KPTV-Fox 12 in Portland, Oregon and as an Internet producer at local NBC-affiliate, KGW.com. My contributions to these award-winning local news stations helped me become efficient and calm in crisis situations.
My volunteer contributions range from fundraising, communications (building a brand, writing and publishing an annual newsletter, website creation and social media) to project management.
The urge to be involved in my community is strong. Currently, I serve as PTSA President for my neighborhood school and as a representative for SE Portland on the city of Portland Parks Bureau Budget Advisory Committee. For two years, I served as a Community Representative on the city-wide advisory group for Central City 2035, a long range plan for city of Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. I also served for eight years as a neighborhood board member at Hosford-Abernethy Neighborhood Development.
My free time is filled with runs (NYC Marathon 2014!), walks and exploring Portland’s parks. A trained Pet Partner with my yellow lab Salty, we enjoy visiting residents at a neighborhood memory care facility.
