Outside of her work for PHB, Michelle volunteers on the board of the Oregon Native American Chamber of Commerce, and for the Oregon Food Bank as a chef/instructor. She also recently began serving on the board of Know Your City, and is in the 2017 cohort of the Emerge Oregon program.
Why I serve as a community liaison
"I love my hometown and am inspired to see Portland become a city where residents can thrive. I’m passionate about East Portland and the issues arising as a result in big shifts in the Portland area. Having lived in Guadalajara, Mexico, Caracas, Venezuela, Washington DC, and Los Angeles, I cannot think of a better place to focus my experience."
