Originally founded in 1868, and re-established in 2019, the Prineville Downtown Association is working to make Prineville even better!
PDA will organize and promote constructive relationships between local government bodies and private business and citizens. We will support other charitable and educational organizations whose primary interest is to preserve and develop the quality and economic stability of Downtown Prineville. And we will represent the concerns of the downtown area at the city, county, and special district level.
Here are some of our first projects in progress!
If you could write your own job title concerning what you do here, what would it be? I plant, and then nurture, the seeds of change and growth!
Describe any professional designations and industry-related accomplishments. I like to have as many tools in my toolbox as possible! I am a general notary, a master gardener, have an OLCC license and food handlers card, as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology. You’ll often see me around Central Oregon working local events during the weekend. For most of my life, I have lived and breathed hospitality and tourism. I love chatting with people, especially those who have the travel bug – like me!
What inspires you about working for the Prineville – Crook County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center? People inspire me! Being able to support those who do what they love every day is what inspires me about working at the Chamber!
Give us a few personal details. I love music, dancing, and traveling! If you ever come to my house, you’ll find the record player roaring, a couple of candles lit, and a plethora of memorabilia from my adventures!
