Our Team

mckenzie and cerb.jpg

McKenzie has lived in Oregon her whole life and completed her Bachelor of Science in Children, Youth and Family Studies at Portland State University. She is passionate about working with, helping, and encouraging youth in any way possible. She spends most of her free time either adventuring outside in beautiful Oregon, singing, dancing or hanging out with her 3-year-old black lab rescue pup, Cerberus.


Margarette loves learning about all things people and politics, and loves adventuring of (almost) all kinds. She grew up in a small town in Alaska where she learned how important kindness and togetherness are, spent a few years traveling after highschool, and at 25 is really still just trying to figure out what to do with her life. For now, Margarette enjoys learning, playing music, spending time with friends (virtually, at least), and getting outside as much as she can. 


Aaron is one of our volunteer presenters.  He has enjoyed working with youth in Oregon City for the past 11 years. He and his wife Amanda have 3 girls, Ava, Ariel, and Amara.  Aaron loves outdoor adventures, reading, playing guitar, restoring cars, skateboarding, snowboarding, and playing princess dress up.



Elizabeth lives and works in the beautiful Columbia Gorge. Her favorite pastimes include hiking, getting lost in bookstores, Netflix binging, and travel. She most enjoys one-on-one coffee dates with her best friends and making them laugh until they cry. She has a passion for helping teenagers and has been working with them in different capacities the last 4 years.
