Name: Karly Tarsia
Company: Lane, A FINN Partner
Job: Assistant Account Executive
Board of Directors: Portland Business Alliance and Emerging Professionals of Portland

Why Karly joined the Portland Business Alliance board of directors:
I was elected to serve as board chair for the Emerging Professionals of Portland (EPOP), and I am the first sitting chair from EPOP to serve on the Alliance board of directors.

I want to be able to better understand the goals for the Alliance and the city, and how EPOP can tangibly implement these into our framework.

Why it’s important:
I am the youngest member to serve on the Alliance board, and I want to relay more information about EPOP to the board at large so we can seamlessly connect the two missions.

Why Karly loves the Portland region: 
I love that you can go to the mountains, high dessert, coast, county and city all within two hours of Portland. Not to mention the farm-to-table food scene is AMAZING and easily accessible.

Fun Fact:
I work in public relations from 9 to 5, but outside of that, I work as a wedding planner.
