Arts & Culture for everyone

Job Programming Manager / Portland Public Library

Lives In The West End

I live and work in Portland with my husband, two children and backyard chickens. I love that I am able to create and promote arts & cultural programming that is free and accessible to everyone through my work at Portland Public Library. I thrive on the mix of cultures, languages, ideas, philosophies and perspectives that I am exposed to on a daily basis.

Why did you choose Portland? It's my favorite city in my favorite state.

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? I admire the many Portlanders who wake up everyday and do things to make our community a better place.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? My house. Aurora Provisions. Reiche School. Deering Oaks Ravine & Farmers Market. Running on the Portland Trails.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Avocado shake at Kim's Vietnamese Sandwich Shop.
