In two sentences tell us what you do at the Deschutes River Conservancy.

As the Office Manager I play a key role in providing general office and administrative support for the organization. While I work with the entire staff, I work most closely with the Director of Finance. Particularly with respect to bookkeeping, administrative assistance, office management, and financial accountability. I also assist the Development Director with database management, donor relations, event support, and other assigned projects.

What is the most important thing you are working on right now?

Right now, we are working on transferring to a new Customer Relationship Manager database to be able to increase and organize our donor engagement better.

Last book you read OR movie you watched?

The last book I read was, Paddling My Own Canoe: A Solo Adventure On the Coast of Molokai by Audrey Sutherland.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

You’ll find me outside most of the time. I love exploring new places, trail running, backpacking, and spending time with my husband and our dog Pinto.

What is one thing you can’t live without?

My family and hot sauce. Hot sauce spices up your life!
