Board President 

It is with such gratitude to work at HLC which is alive with dedicated, creative, and deeply human providers, staff, and members. I come into this space with years of community planning, clinical operations and training, public health work, board leadership, and counseling and birth work. I have a deep dedication in supporting people and communities build narratives and realities that feel more aligned and connected. 

With the support of leadership, staff, providers, and community members we hope to grow programming, extend hours, and have a larger outreach into the community. While there are many complexities we are currently navigating as a society, I hold great belief in the power of, and teaching in, community spaces that transform systems of power and oppression. Healthy Living Community strives to continue to uplift those it connects with and continue to impact and be impacted by the amazing folks who are part of this. 

As a dedicated mama, partner, friend, and community member I strive to drive our understanding and application of healthcare forward with deep humility, humor, and humanness.

Having co-owned and operated a small printing company for over 20 years he brings business management and financial analysis skills to the board. He has a firm belief in the organizations mission and values as well as motivation to assist with the creation of an innovative strategy for health care delivery in a community focused model.

Carl has continually looked for ways to give back to the local community some of the success his business has enjoyed. Some of these efforts include providing print services to organizations such as, Growing Gardens whose mission is to promote home-scale organic food gardening to improve nutrition and self-reliance in underserved communities, Compassion and Choices who continues the fight for death with dignity in our life cycles, and CASA (Court appointed special advocates for children).

Due to a long series of fortunate circumstances, he met fellow board member Dr. Kerry Schaefer who introduced him to the rest of the brilliant members of the board of Healthy Living Community and decided that surrounding himself with extremely talented people was a good idea. As a board member he is excited to help further the mission and vision of our community.

Hi! My name is Mikayla and I am Healthy Living Community’s Board Secretary. Some of you may remember me as Dr. Kerry’s scribe (I was in this role for two years)! It was during my time scribing that I got to see Healthy Living Community take form and grow into the amazing health community it is today! My favorite things about HLC: the people : ) and HLC’s commitment to changing the healthcare delivery landscape to make holistic care more accessible in our communities.

A little bit about me: I am a Portland native! I am currently getting my Master’s in Public Health at OHSU. In my spare time I love to hike around the PNW, read a thick book, do a puzzle, or learn a new song on the piano.
