Leadership Portland Spotlight: Ann McQuesten
Name: Ann McQuesten
Company: Perkins Coie LLP
Why they got involved in Leadership Portland:
I hope to gain a deeper understanding of the complex issues that affect our region's social and economic institutions, and use this knowledge to improve those systems. I am also very excited to develop lasting relationships with my Leadership Portland classmates.
Why it’s important:
I believe that awareness of community issues and understanding the diverse issues faced by members of the community are critical to being an effective leader. I also believe that it is incumbent on members of the business community with the ability to provide positive leadership to do so in a way that serves members of the community with less influence.
Why Ann loves the Portland region:
I love that in the same day and within miles of each other I can hit the trails in forest park and choose from any number of restaurants for a world class meal.
I have been enjoying experimenting with new cooking methods, particularly when I can use fresh ingredients from my garden.
