    I'm an easy going fun loving person. I have two amazing kiddos and a husband that I claim as my third child. I love living in the most topographical state and everything it has to offer. I enjoy; skiing, snowboarding, camping, but I really love to float with my kids and watch the bald eagles fly overhead. I have been doing some form of administration work for 15+ years. I recently had the opportunity to work with Chinese athletes, I felt so good knowing I was making a difference and impacting each of their lives. I knew moving forward it was vital to my happiness to work for a company that contributes to making the world a better place.

                            Hi! My name is Kylene Arnold, and I feel very privileged to work with DD & MH Providers of Oregon as we work together to truly make a difference in the lives of others. Before I started a family, I worked in the David Douglas School District as a Title 1 Assistant, and also worked with Special Education. I look back on these years with very fond memories of both the children I worked with and also the friends I made on staff. I am a wife and a very proud mother to two beautiful teenage girls. I was a stay at home mom, and enjoyed the opportunity to home-school my girls up until last year. They are currently busy students at Sam Barlow High School, and I enjoy spending time with them so much that it is pretty much my favorite thing to do! I enjoy time spent with my husband as well, who was my high school sweetheart. We enjoy a good cup of coffee and absolutely love talking about theology and the latest things we have studied with our favorite non-profit: BibleProject. Spending time with my family is something I truly value, and I feel blessed to have them all local. I also am an animal lover, and find the relationship and observance of animals very therapeutic! All the animals that we have are actually ridiculously adorable! I thank God for His good gifts in my life

                                                          Hello! My name is Deirdre [Deer-dra], I have over 7 years experience assisting people with barriers to find employment. I started out in the employment industry working as a paid intern at Portland Community College. For 6 months I helped students with creating resumes and offered interview tips and hosted job fairs. After my internship I took a job with a local non-profit working as an Employment specialist. The non profit had a much larger client base and I got to serve an amazing group of people. My new position is in some ways similar to my last but with more responsibility. I truly love this line of work and look forward to new experiences. I love traveling with my daughter, jamming to old school tunes with my sister, and spending time with friends at the coast.

                                                            Having worked in the non-profit world for many years, as well as being an investment broker for years, I believe I have a balanced view on the world around me. I truly believe we all deserve respect and love, I am so looking forward to working once again with people that put other's needs as paramount in their lives. Getting the opportunity to assist others in the development of life skills as well as embracing the world around them, is a challenge and mission that I am happy to fulfill. I am a personal who is analytical, but embraces my "musician" side as well and in my off hours, I work on various musical pursuits in my studio here in my home. I am a country boy at heart, and living in Eagle Creek Oregon is truly enjoyable. I am looking forward to getting remarried in the coming months to an amazing woman, and loving being a grandpa to 6 adorable grandkids.

                                                                My name is Ilsa (ill-suh) and I am the mother of the most spectacular little human, my daughter Felicity. We live with 2 fluffy cats, Kinoko and Thistle, and some of my favorite activities are anything my daughter and I can do together. Any kind of art, especially crafting and painting, spending time outside, collecting cool rocks, listening to true crime podcasts, watching nature documentaries, playing games on Nintedo Switch, and baking are some of the many things I love doing. I was a CNA and worked as a caregiver for 3 years, working primarily with elderly experiencing dementia. I have a great love for holistic healthcare because it promotes mental, social, emotional, and financial health as being equally as important as physical health for a well rounded person. My goal is to continue providing and promoting holistic forms of support for people from all walks of life, especially those in vulnerable populations.

In my early years I traveled a lot and ended up in Australia for 3 years where I attended the University of Newcastle and played soccer and rugby. Later in life I spent some time in the military and my career naturally progressed to management. I am married with a 15 year old son. We live on property up the Mt and run a small hobby farm with donkeys, goats, a random rooster and whoever else shows up at our door. When I am not working or doing chores I make custom crafts as gifts for friends and family.
