My number one desire is to provide tools and resources for individuals and organizations which help contribute to their success. I am beyond fortunate to join the talented team at RDI in its mission for helping rural communities and people achieve the visions and goals they set for themselves. My education includes a Bachelor's in Business Management and a certification as a yoga instructor. I've gained over 15 years of experience in team and leadership development, creating and delivering training programs, and business and strategic planning, ranging from corporate to nonprofit environments. I grew up in Minnesota in a Spanish-speaking home and relocated to Oregon to help a nonprofit that does wilderness therapy. I love the people and playgrounds of Oregon, and I truly enjoy the enthusiasm and dedication of community members in helping achieve economic vitality and growth in their towns.
