I Protect Oregon Because…

I am a native of the Pacific Northwest and returned to Oregon after living in Washington, DC and Brussels because Oregon is a special place. My husband and I have two kids, Dylan and Megan. We decided to raise them here because we want them to grow up with a sense of respect and appreciation for a diverse ecosystem and natural wonders that Oregon offers.

We explore the four corners of this incredible state, camping, hiking, biking and rafting Oregon’s beautiful rivers. Everyone can make Oregon your own, but we can all agree that it is a special place and worthy of protecting. It’s our Oregon. I work hard to protect it for my children, and for future generations of Oregonians.
