Aleda believes that effective communication can help solve our most pressing environmental challenges and that scientists play a key role in generating those solutions. Her passion for supporting scientists to be better communicators brought her to COMPASS, where she keeps things running smoothly at the Portland office, supports trainings and events, and assists leadership.
Prior to joining COMPASS, Aleda worked at an intercultural center where she developed cross-cultural communication skills, coordinated intercultural communication workshops, planned events, and supported leadership. She earned her B.A. in International Studies and French, with a focus in Peace and Conflict studies at University of Oregon. A Midwesterner turned Pacific Northwesterner, Aleda explores, backpacks, hikes, and runs around the region. In her spare time, she enjoys being the fun aunt to her furry niece Zoey (a lab/blue heeler mix) and trying to make a dent in her ongoing list of books to read and podcasts to listen to.
