Michele White, M.S.W., Interim Executive Director
503-626-9100, ext. 221
I have dedicated over 20 years to non-profit management and community organizing and have consulted with numerous non-profits in the health and human services sector to increase funding and improve efficacy. Upon moving to Portland, I served as the Director of Administration at FolkTime, which focuses on peer support for those in mental health recovery. I was also a founding board member for the nonprofit Outside the Frame, which works with houseless or formerly houseless youth in the Portland area to explore their artistic talents through movie production. Prior to that, I trained individuals to lobby for themselves at the Arizona State Legislature and instructed MSW students at Arizona State University (ASU) in advocacy and community organizing. I earned a master’s degree in social work and a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from ASU. In my free time, I enjoy singing, dancing, hiking and spending time with my wife, Trista, and our two rescue pups, Lucy and Riley. Contact me by email at michelew@sarcoregon.
