Growing up in Portland, Oregon, some of my favorite memories include biking over the city’s bridges and hiking in the Columbia River Gorge. This strong connection to my community and to the outdoors is what makes me want to take care of it, and I'm excited to be part of a team that makes access to these places more equitable for everyone.
