In 2012 I moved to Oregon to continue my education at the University of Oregon in community and regional planning, public policy and administration, and nonprofit management. After I graduated in 2016, I became a RARE (Resource Assistance for Rural Environments) AmeriCorps member for two years serving in two different parts of Oregon. I was placed with the City of Jacksonville for one year and with Travel Lane County in the Willamette Valley for my second year. During my time as a RARE AmeriCorps member, I fell in love with rural communities and the passion and drive that each community has. I am excited to be a part of the Rural Economic Vitality Team, supporting a variety of projects including our work with Main Street programs throughout the Pacific Northwest.
