she/her/hers | Equity Leader
Employer: Oregon Public Broadcasting
Moved Here from: Houston, TX on June 2022
Why did you move here?
My parents moved to Eugene about seven years ago, and I have been spending a lot of time in the PNW since they relocated. I've considered moving to live closer to them for a while now, so earlier this year I started looking for job opportunities in the region. Luckily, I came across the Equity Leader position at OPB which helped make the move possible!
What is one thing that you need/want from a community right now?
A space to connect socially. Thanks to OPB, I already feel that I have a strong professional network in Portland, but I would love to be connected with people I can get to know on a more personal level, and ideally with folks who share similar lived experiences.
What kind of civic connection are you interested in making?
Community organizers who are engaged in the issues I care about, such as racial equity and access to the arts.
