What is your profession? How do you spend your days?
I’m the Sr Director of Corporate Strategy and Development at Nike. I spend my days thinking about how to help Nike grow in a profitable, sustainable and premium way.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love spending time with my family. We take full advantage of the Pacific Northwest by hiking, skiing, playing soccer outside, and backyard barbecues. I also enjoy traveling and reading.
What is your favorite spot in Oregon to visit?
There are many amazing places – cannon beach, timberline, wine country, multnomah falls, and smith rock are some of my favorites.
What have you been inspired by lately?
The evolution of SVPP – see below.
Why do you value Social Venture Partners?
I am inspired by the idea of involved philanthropy, but have been absolutely blown away by the organization’s openness to self-examination. By continuing to value action and results, and by questioning whether we can do better despite measureable past success, SVPP continues to raise the bar. I am so excited about the new ready for kindergarten focus and believe that we are well positioned to have an outsized impact on kids in Multnomah County.
