Last week, two of our wonderful team members, Abby Warren and David Nguyen, moved on to their next adventures. We would like to thank them for their outstanding work!
Abby is a student at Portland State University, and was an intern in our office for two years. She will graduate from PSU with a degree in Community Development.
Abby has a passion for increasing opportunities for Portlanders to access fresh, healthy food, she and helped lead the effort to create 1,000 new garden plots in the community. Last month, we celebrated reaching that goal. Abby also helped launch our first ever Kids Cook! event, which taught local children the value of growing, preparing, and eating your own food.
David came to our office after graduating from the University of Oregon with a degree in Political Science, with a Business Administration minor. For the last year, he has covered our front desk, answering constituent questions and greeted guests.
He also was a lead contributor to our website, and left a lasting legacy of wonderful photographs of our parks, recreation centers, and housing communities.
Thanks, David, for your great work!
