Strategy, Organizing, Development

Master's DegreeHarvard University



I love leading with vision, keeping my word, and working with diverse teams. I enjoy taking on opportunities with steep learning curves. I am an ordained minister with a focus on community development, proud partner and parent. Over the last 25 years, I have directed a US National faith-based program working in all 50 US states, and serving as Executive Director of one of the leading advocacy organizations in Oregon (US state of 4 million people on the West Coast). Together we've won a range of climate, health and human rights campaigns that have directed resources and improved the lives of thousands. One of my most recent and exciting projects is the $20.0 Million US Dollar Mixed Use Affordable Housing and Cultural Center in East Portland. I’ve returned to the Philippines with our family and am excited to be working directly in Asia-Pacific region with civil society organizations.
