Why AJ got involved in Leadership Portland:
I have been involved with the Portland Business Alliance for the last 10 years, and many of my colleagues have been through the program. I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, so I wanted to learn more, broaden my knowledge of local government, community and business sectors, and learn how they all work together.

Why it’s important:
It’s important that we all work together as a better team, and focus on critical issues affecting our business and local government.

Why AJ loves the Portland region:
I love the access to nature, snow, lakes, the beach and the food.

Fun Fact:
I enjoy cooking, travelling, hiking, and love watching, playing and coaching sports.
