Description

Kathleen Todd was born into a small family in Tacoma, Washington. She came to Lewis & Clark determined to study abroad and to become the first person in her family to earn a degree. She studied education with the goals of teaching grade school humanities subjects, while incorporating the literature, geography, and history she learned in her studies abroad in Iran and Mexico. Her trip to Iran in 1968 provided lifelong friendships and developed interpersonal skills that she’s used throughout her life and career. She worked as the director of the Office of Citizen Involvement for Multnomah County for almost 20 years before her retirement in February 2015, and found the problem-solving abilities and social skills she gained at Lewis & Clark and abroad extremely valuable. Currently, she works with the Center for the Arts Foundation in Gresham and serves as a chair of the Vital Aging Network for Multnomah County.
