Evelyn’s work in the intellectual and developmental disabilities field has spanned a number of organizations.
She’s served as a family consultant for the Oregon Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs, which aims to improve the health, development, and well-being of all Oregon’s children and youth with special health care needs.
Evelyn is the parent of two adult children; her oldest son experiences intellectual disability. She describes her most important job as being a mom. The wealth of experience that she gained raising a child with a disability, and helping her son complete school, participate in Boy Scouts, and prepare for adult life brings a tremendous amount to the Board’s efforts to make a difference for individuals with disabilities in Oregon and their families.
Evelyn has served on the Board previously. Currently, she’s beginning her second term.
