Human Resources Business Partner

Human Resources, City of Portland

Higher Education

I am a native Oregonian, a mother, a Latina and a passionate advocate for equity and inclusion. I have been with the City of Portland for 11 years and was at the State of Oregon for 15 years before that. I currently serve as the HR Business Partner for the Office of Management and Finance, Housing and the Office of Equity. As a Senior Professional of Human Resources (SPHR), I pride myself on staying up to speed on the latest HR laws, rules regulations and initiatives.   

I love to cook, run and spending time with my family. I live in Portland's Pearl district and love taking long runs or bike rides on Portland's beautiful trails.
