Here is a snap shot of 2010 work:

North Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity hired me to redesign their existing site and create two sites: and I enjoyed working with the team at NWV Habitat. Thanks for the work Jerry!

2010 Go Red for Women Luncheon

The team at the American Heart Association of Oregon and SW Washington has been fabulous to work with. This summer, I volunteered as the Public Relations Chair for the Go Red for Women Luncheon held on October 12, 2010 (my birthday). The event was at the Oregon Convention Center where nearly 400 people attended the fundraiser to help stop cardiovascular disease in women. I developed the invitation, program, and Website for this event. Thank you Christina Fisher! It was fun working with you.

2010 Start! Wellness Summit
2010 Start! Wellness Summit

The American Heart Association (AHA) Start! Wellness Summit was held on November 12, 2010, and attended by over 200 local Human Resource professionals. I was excited to be hired by Samantha Swaim and Shelli Blank to design all the material needed for the summit including the invitation, menu, program, CD, binders for all attendees, and a banner. The event was a great learning experience and the line up of speakers were both inspirational and practical. The event enhanced the HR class I recently took at Southern Oregon University for my Masters in Management degree.

The next project I am working on for AHA will be ten Go Red for Women Ambassador Billboards to be displayed around the Portland and Vancouver area in 2011. I can’t wait to see the boards up above the highways. Rebecca Francher of AHA is leading the initiative and it will be a complete hit all around town. Great job Rebecca!

I began volunteering at Volunteers at America Oregon (VOA) in 2010. I am building an advisory committee for the senior services division. VOA operates two adult day centers: one in North Portland and one in SE Portland. Unlike the name infers, Volunteers of America has paid staff that dedicates themselves to various causes from children and family services to drug and alcohol treatment to public safety programs and senior services. But they do count on volunteers to help with the causes. I was delighted to make this handout (below) for a recent event in Gresham, Oregon. Thanks to Tiffany McKenna, I also had my first paid speaking engagement. Tiffany gave me the opportunity to speak about the future of aging services to caregivers who work with seniors on a daily basis. Luckily my professor, John Bowling, was kind enough to share his PowerPoint from the Oregon Gerontology Association‘s annual conference and I jazzed it up a bit.

Toastmasters is also coming in handy preparing me to acquire more public speaking skills. As the VP of PR for my Toastmasters club, I updated the existing Website and created a blog. Check it out: and
