What do you do at Prosper Portland?

I work in public relations, community outreach and engagement.

What do you like most about your job?

I love telling stories about our partners’ businesses, organizations, and communities.

What does equity mean to you?

I think equity is when ALL members of a community have constant access to the decision-making process and are able to prosper from the outcomes.

“We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community… Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.” ― César E. Chávez
