Hello!  I’m Becca, and after spending the last 20 years doing nonprofit work I joined the Admissions and Recruitment team at PCC. For the past 16 years I have worked at local Portland nonprofits, most recently the Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA), focused on academic success and college and career readiness with youth and young adults. Now I have the joy of working in higher ed here at PCC where I am helping to share with others all the amazing opportunities to engage and learn available at PCC.  I am passionate about helping people to embark on their postsecondary journeys, and believe in providing pathways to upward mobility for all.

Greetings, future PCC Panther! I’m Heidi and I have worked in higher education for over 20 years both at Portland Community College and Portland State University in various student affairs, workforce development and teaching roles. Previously I worked for the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO) where I assisted newly-arrived refugees to learn English, transition into employment, and establish themselves in the Portland metropolitan area. I enjoy meeting with prospective students, and families, to explore how higher education fits into their lives and look forward to meeting you!

I’ve worked at PCC for 6 years! During my time at PCC, I’ve been an academic advisor and non-immigrant visa advisor, working with a diverse population of students and helping them to reach their career goals. I am new to the Admissions and Recruitment role, but very excited to join the team and work with prospective students!
