As a community engagement specialist at PRR, my role is to help community members and organizations work with our clients to improve project outcomes. This involves translating technical information into words people can understand when we’re talking and in writing. And a lot of listening. I love having the opportunity to use engagement for early identification and resolution of potential problems, and for building trust between clients and the public. I’m always looking for ways to make civic engagement fun, whether that’s hosting a Drink and Vote event with friends (it’s just like it sounds) or making an art project out of neighborhood meeting attendance. In my personal time, I like to try my hand at new recipes, read sci-fi fantasy novels, and hike in the Cascades.

People are at the heart of our work, and we have some really great people.

Vision statement of anti-racism.

An anti-racist PRR dismantles systems of advantage based on race when and wherever possible. We engage staff of all racial identities in dismantling white supremacy culture at work. This  includes personal ideologies, beliefs, and behaviors. And, it includes removing white supremacy culture from the systems, cultural messages, institutional policies, procedures, and practices that PRR and our staff interact with and inform. We believe it is not enough to be “not racist.” We must be “anti-racist.”
