Goodbye Party & Happy Hour
08/23/2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
It is with mixed emotions that we share the news that Marissa Streyle, our GlobalPDX Coordinator since our launch in February 2017, will be transitioning out of GlobalPDX. Marissa and her family are moving to Austin, Texas this month to start a new chapter in their lives.
Marissa was an incredible first coordinator for GlobalPDX and brought a wealth of experience in conference planning, coalition building and international development to our team. She helped the Steering Committee take the concept of the initiative to fruition, hosting successful workshops, networking sessions and an unforgettable inaugural conference in 2017. Noor Trienekens, Director at the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health, will dedicate part of her time as the coordinator for GlobalPDX going forward. Noor has a wealth of expertise in Global Health and International Development. She served as the International Program Manager and Deputy Director at the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Global Health in Uganda prior to moving to Portland. Marissa and Noor have spent significant time together over the last month to ensure a seamless transition. Andrea Johnson, the Executive Director of Green Empowerment, will be leading the GlobalPDX Steering Committee.
Join GlobalPDX and Green Empowerment for a Goodbye Party & Happy Hour where you will have an opportunity to say goodbye to Marissa!
