In an age where most interactions have gone paperless, wireless, and/or people-less, you understand the importance of balancing the real and the virtual worlds. While many may view the skill of record keeping as a lost art, archaic, or downright inconvenient, you recognize it as our last connection to, and the key component of, documenting our history. You welcome the challenge of finding joy in tasks others might find mundane - meeting minutes, archiving, etc. - and strive to educate others on the significance of a true and accurate record of what they have achieved and how it was accomplished. Guiding an organization through a conversion from paper to electronic record keeping intrigues you, and your skill in project management and in building and maintaining relationships make you well equipped for the task. You pride yourself on providing excellent customer service and have learned through your experiences that an unruffled, polite approach is the best approach no matter how contentious the situation.

Within its limits are bold thinkers who work hard for what... they want. It’s not a city of entitlement, but rather born from the river with a rich heritage of commerce. Steeped in history, it began with the founding of Boone’s Landing, home to one of the first ferries over the Willamette River. Over time, it became the Gateway to the Willamette Valley—the “Eden” at the end of the Oregon Trail where American settlers and the valley’s original people, Kalapuya, found common purpose in agriculture. Today, it still exists and stands as the destination for some of Oregon’s most innovative and coveted companies.
