Teresa was in her late 30s when she received the diagnosis for the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy that had taken the life of her brother. Thanks to the cardiology team at Cedars-Sinai and a donor named Jennie, Teresa lives a life of active gratitude.
Director of Development
Cloie grew up in Oregon, and is grateful for all that the state offers in terms of natural beauty, vibrant community, and interesting people to meet. She has worked for non-profits since 1998 - at Childpeace Montessori School in Portland and Menucha Retreat and Conference Center in Corbett. Cloie is the vice-chair of the Public Safety and Equity Advisory Committee for the city of Troutdale and volunteers in a variety of capacities for organizations in the region. Donate Life Northwest’s mission is particularly close to her heart as her best friend has been fortunate to receive two kidney donations and her brother in law was also an eye and tissue donor upon his unexpected passing in 2014.
Cloie is a mother, wife, writer, scratch cook, and maintains a spreadsheet of hikes she’s taken and ones she’d like to do. She is eager to hear about your connection to Donate Life Northwest, how the mission resonates, and your hopes for the future of this special community and its crucial work.
