Cary Watters has joined COC this summer as a community engagement intern as a key project partner with our Tulalip Indian Tribes Lower Quilceda Neighborhood Plan project. She is a member of the Tlingit Indian Nation and is passionate about natural and cultural resources. Her perspective will continue to provide valuable insight into our community and youth engagement strategy and the neighborhood plan. Cary just completed her first year in the Master of Urban and Regional Planning program (MURP) at Portland State University, specializing in environmental planning. She graduated from The Evergreen State College in 2008 with a focus on natural resource science and public policy, and has worked as Policy Assistant for Portland City Commissioner Amanda Fritz between college and graduate school. Her previous interview, survey and facilitation work with the Portland Youth and Elders Council, along with her commitment to equity and social justice in the planning process, is a great fit for COC and our other planning and community engagement project work. Welcome Cary!
