Darcy, Front Desk
Darcy is a great facilitator and very methodical. She enjoys creating systems to help the office run smoothly. With a 20 year career in customer service and the alternative medicine field, she takes pleasure in helping those who are underserved. We love her because she is committed, sensitive, smart, understanding, and a team player.
Away from the office she enjoys spending time with her elderbull, Zoey, going on scenic walks and hikes, dancing and playing games with friends, along with enjoying all kinds of art. Often in the warmer months you will find her helping to build community art projects. When it’s cold out she likes to get her craft on, sewing, crochet, knitting mostly. Originally from Minneapolis, she finds herself in Portland after living in San Diego and Honolulu while in college. She chose Portland because of its proximity to both the mountains and the ocean and has been here since 2009.
