My Why

After working in the for-profit corporate world for more than 20 years I was compelled to find a way to use my skills and experience for the greater good. My personal experience growing up with an aunt who experiences an intellectual/developmental disability, made the mission and vision of The Arc a natural fit for me. My grandmother was a trailblazer, advocating for full civil rights and community inclusion for my aunt back in the 1960’s, and I grew up not knowing that institutions even existed. I like to think I am continuing her legacy through my work at The Arc Oregon.

My Life

I have lived in Oregon since 1996, moving to Keizer from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County.  I’m basically an introverted homebody with big dreams for world travel in the future! When I’m not working I love to spend time with my three grown kids, watch movies, read historical fiction, and hang out with friends and family.
