I am the Executive Director with Clackamas County Long Term Disaster Recovery Group & Senior Manager with MITER Brand’s . In the wake of the Clackamas Counties wildfire Disaster of 2020, I worked alongside Local and State agencies, local community-based organizations, and businesses to form a collaborative partnership and cofound the Clackamas County Long Term Recovery Group (CCLTRG). It's a great honor to have the privilege to serve the citizens of our county and collaborate with people who have a desire to see a disaster-stricken people restored to safe, sanitary, and secure living.
I have lived in Clackamas County most of my life. It’s where my husband and I live, work, and raised our kids together.
When the 2020 wildfires hit, I saw first-hand the damage it caused and the impact it had on our community. When given the opportunity to join the CCLTRG, I knew I had to say yes. I saw how important it was to come alongside our communities to dig out and rebuild all that was lost. I am now in my second term on the board as the secretary, as well as serving on the Clackamas County Preparedness Council.
Jamie has served as the chair of the volunteer advisory committee and acts as the liaison to Clackamas County. Jamie is the Interim Deputy Disaster Manager for Clackamas County Disaster Management. She has 12 years with the department and currently manages the operations team. During the 2020 Labor Day Wildfires, Jamie was one of the primary alert originators, and worked on volunteers and donations management. She then shifted into recovery work, serving as the County’s Voluntary Agency Liaison working with community and faith-based organizations, FEMA and the Oregon Office of Emergency Management to stand up the Clackamas County LTRG.
I am a retired CPA, after 30+ years of serving in financial capacities for a nonprofit healthcare institution. I am very much involved in managing various federal, state, corp, and private foundation grants involving research. I was approached to volunteer for CCLTRG to help manage the overall finances and financial compliance with grants. I am pleased to be part of an organization that brings financial help to residents of Clackamas County that are in crisis due to unforeseen disasters.
I am a retired Medical Technologist and a lifelong Oregon resident. I enjoy outdoor activities like skiing and hiking on Mt Hood. and enjoy helping our community. I’m the Director of a non-profit dedicated to promoting clean drinking water and a member of the Milwaukie Lions Club.
I was born and raised in Clackamas County and have lived in the greater Portland area most of my life. I am currently residing in Clackamas County with my wife, Kathy. I owned a small business in Portland for over 30 years, and have done volunteer work traveling to third world countries. I have also volunteered with a local program which works with first responders helping victims and families at scenes of trauma. I am happy to work locally helping others who are in need.
I am the CCLTRG admin and live in Portland with my husband, Luke, and our two dogs.
I am passionate about helping people who have been affected by wildfires, as I know firsthand the devastation it can cause. While living in Kelowna, BC when I was a child, my family lost our home in a wildfire. There were some organizations that offered help and resources to the families that lost homes in the fire, and I am still incredibly grateful for the help they gave my family. I am honored to now be a part of an organization that does the same.
