Sitting in Portland, I'm charged with expanding PRR's work with existing and new clients in Oregon. My work encompasses strategic communications, community outreach, and urban planning, with extensive experience supporting state and local public agencies, port authorities, and electric utilities. Working at PRR gives me the advantage of access to the breadth and diversity of experience among our amazing staff. Out in the community, I participate in SOLVE, Oregon’s annual beach clean-up. It’s so satisfying to end the day with several giant bags of garbage off the beach! I also love to spend time outdoors, rain or shine. Hiking, horseback riding, and playing with my yellow lab are among my favorite outdoor activities.
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.”
