My number one desire is to provide tools and resources for individuals and organizations which help contribute to their success. I am beyond fortunate to contribute to the talented team at RDI in its mission for helping rural communities and people achieve the visions and goals they set for themselves. My education includes a Bachelor's in Business Management and a certification as a yoga instructor. I've gained over 15 years of experience in team and leadership development, creating and delivering training programs, and business and strategic planning, ranging from corporate to nonprofit environments. I grew up in Minnesota in a Spanish-speaking home and relocated to Oregon to help a nonprofit that does wilderness therapy. I love the people and playgrounds of Oregon, and I truly enjoy the enthusiasm and dedication of community members in helping achieve economic vitality and growth in their towns.
