Debra Dority, JD, Attorney Oregon Law Center, Chair of the Board, Board Governance Committee
I joined the Sexual Assault Resource Center board because sexual assault is an epidemic and SARC provides the necessary support and assistance to help victims of sexual assault become survivors. SARC does amazing work and I am proud to say I am a member of the board of directors. Member since 2009.
Eleanor Laws, JD, Administrative Law Judge with the National Labor Relations Board, Vice Chair of the Board, Board Governance Committee
I choose to serve on SARC’s board because I want to use my legal training and skills beyond earning my paycheck. If my service helps SARC function more smoothly, this enables the volunteers and dedicated employees of SARC to help survivors heal and ultimately achieve their goals. I serve because I am able to, and that is a privilege. I hope SARC can help survivors reach this same place and beyond. Member since 2012.
Tim Roberts, Police Captain Beaverton Police Department, Board Governance Committee
With nearly 26 years of local law enforcement experience in Washington County, I have been very aware of the workSARC has done. When I was asked about working with an organization outside the police department, SARC was the obvious answer. I am grateful for the work SARC does with victims, and continually impressed with the efforts of so many people who volunteer their time. SARC’s ability to sustain their service to our communities for so many years speaks to their professional approach and a willingness to adapt to the current needs of victims. While I wish there was not need for such service, I am glad to be able to participate with such an organization. Member since 2012.
Olivia Pederson-Hipes, MBA, Director of Finance, Board Finance Committee
I am a proud mom of two amazing teen daughters and I’m very excited to support SARC as a board member. I choose to serve this wonderful organization that educates and strives to break the cycle of sexual violence in our society. I’m very proud of the work SARC does, whether it be through education, advocacy or crisis support. I share my SARC board work with both my daughters, knowing that the knowledge they gain through my shared experiences can only help them grow into strong, independent and influential women. Member since 2012.
Tyler Reimann, CPA, Property Management Accountant, Chair of the Finance Committee
I chose to serve on SARC’s board because I believe strongly in advocating for the rights of survivors of sexual assault. This organization has a strong reputation of standing with survivors in their time of need, while expecting nothing in return. SARC addresses sexual assault as a public health problem that is larger than any one incident and I am proud to stand behind that message. Member since 2012.
Heidi Pollard-Hermann, MA, MSN, Labor & Delivery RN, Board Secretary, Board Development Committee

SARC is on the front lines providing compassionate care to survivors of all forms of sexual assault. I’m passionate about creating opportunities for others to give and participate in their ongoing work! Member since 2012.
