firstname.lastname@example.org | 971.230.1291
As a Community Engagement Officer at Northwest Health Foundation, Michael’s primary role is to support the work and elevate the stories of our current and potential community partners. He does this by engaging our partners in capacity building and technical assistance, facilitating gatherings, reviewing grant applications for NWHF's funding opportunities, and making connections between community leaders and organizations who might benefit from knowing each other.
Michael earned his master's of public administration from Washington State University Vancouver in 2012. His master’s thesis examined the federal Worker Protection Standard and how poor implementation of that law puts farmworkers at risk.
Michael’s previous professional positions include Youth Outreach Coordinator for Snake River Housing GEAR UP in Prescott, WA; Admissions Counselor for Washington State University Vancouver; and Director of Inclusion and Access for the Linfield College School of Nursing.
Michael has participated in Rural Development Initiatives' Community Leadership Program, the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce Latino Leadership program and the Oregon Health Authority Office of Equity and Inclusion DELTA program. He currently serves as the board chair of Familias en Acción.
Michael was born in Puerto Rico, and both his parents were employed by the U.S. military. Growing up in the military community exposed him to many diverse cultures. He had the opportunity to live in a number of different environments, including small towns, large cities and overseas in Germany.
Outside of work, Michael enjoys spending time with his wife April, son Fidel and their dog Duke. Michael and Fidel are avid fans of Legos, Star Wars, Minecraft and nature documentaries.
