As a member of the Rural Economic Vitality Team, I design, facilitate, and co-deliver a variety of Community and Economic Vitality programs focused on moving communities to action and creating healthy business and economic development ecosystems.
I moved to Oregon in 2012 to work on an educational farm and since then have been an advocate for local food systems, small farms, and co-ops. I am passionate about resilient and inclusive communities where everyone has an opportunity to be a leader and serve the greater good.
Outside of work, I enjoy planning community events, camping, rafting, and making pies.
