How long have you worked at EmPower?

I have been at EmPower since January of this year (2017).

What is your favorite thing to do when you aren’t at work?

My favorite thing to do when I am not at work, is take my daughter out to explore Oregon! We love parks, lakes, rivers, hiking, museums, and going on long walks. I also love to write, and am a pretty avid runner.

What do you love about Portland?

I love that Oregon is like an oasis of natural attractions! I have had the most restful sleep by the rushing water in Mt Hood, under the stars. I have had the best coffee ever, and have had some pretty awesome food here! I love that Portland is so family friendly. I have a ton of fun interacting with the families I meet in different neighborhoods. There is always something to do in Portland!

Where can you be found on a Friday night in Portland?

On a Friday night in Portland, you can find me on Division, out exploring different shops, cafes, and I will probably have on tennis sneakers. Love to stop for a glass of wine, get a snack and people watch with my boyfriend and my daughter. We love our neighborhood, and we don’t have to travel far to find something to do !

Where is somewhere you want to go but have never been?

I very much want to go to Bali!

You have a week off from work and other responsibilities…where would we find you?

You would find me in a hot spring somewhere, soaking it up! I would love to go on a yoga retreat somewhere beautiful and just soak up the peaceful environment. I would definitely love for it to be somewhere nice and warm!

Coke or Pepsi?

I do not drink soda at ALL! I would do an iced green tea though 😊

Favorite part of your job?

I love celebrating with the team! When we have all put in tons of work and have secured amazing contracts for our nurses, when they have great feedback for us because they are happy! Happy nurses and co workers really make my day.
