Two big staffing announcements

Last week we met Omar Carrillo – Neighborhood Partnerships new program coordinator.

This week, we’re thrilled to introduce two more staffing changes.

First, staff member Jess Junke is the new Director of Economic Opportunity at NP. To quote Jess: “To put it lightly, I am feeling pretty stoked about this opportunity.”

We’re stoked too, Jess. You can read more from Jess about her new role over at the Oregon IDA Initiative website.

Second, today we announced that Itzel Hernandez-Spehar has joined NP as an IDA Program Coordinator. Iztel comes to us after working for seven years as the IDA progra coordinator at the Portland Housing Center. I sat down with Itzel to ask her a few questions and get to know her better. Find out Itzel’s favorite quote, what she thinks about asset building and more.
