Operations, scheduling and policy
Mary-Margaret grew up in Portland and was educated as a historian. She likes to think that the common ground between historians and schedulers is a deep respect for the passage of time, and the common ground between historical and policy work is the understanding that things can change. She has worked for the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners in a variety of capacities for over seven years. In her spare time she grows dahlias, walks her dog and husband in her North Portland peninsula neighborhood and submits lists to McSweenys.
