I’ve been volunteering intermittently since 2012. I started out on the MAX Committee, where I helped organize the annual Marketing Awards of Excellence.

What is your favorite thing to do in Portland in your spare time?

Portland has so much to offer during my spare time! You can often find me checking out a happy hour spot with friends (one of my faves is Gold Dust Meridian), hiking in Forest Park, or strolling around downtown looking through various shops. If you haven’t already, you’ve gotta check out Tender Loving Empire!
