Meet Our Leadership Team
Every day, our PAL Leadership Team and Board of Directors make a difference in helping children better prepare for life's challenging moments.
The PAL Team
Jesse first began with PAL in 2017 as a Summer Recreation Assistant and throughout the years has transitioned away from and back to the organization and is thrilled to serve as our Executive Director. He has a strong desire to serve the community he grew up in and is excited to make big impacts that align with the mission of PAL. Jesse has unmatched connections to community partners and our law enforcement community, and he was even a Clark County Sheriff Explorer when he was younger. Jesse grew up in Clark County and has served his community in many ways, but one of his favorites is to volunteer umpire for local little leagues!
Director of Development
Bailey joined PAL in December 2022 and is excited to be a part of the team where she can contribute to the mission and continue to make a difference in the community. She has experience with several nonprofits in Clark County and beyond where she has worked with youth, homelessness, law enforcement and more. Bailey grew up in Clark County and has been around law enforcement her entire life. She graduated from Boise State University with a degree in Communications and a Certificate in Innovation Design: Emerging Applications. In her free time, she loves to spend time outdoors with her Australian Shepherd, Milo.
Eli joined PAL as a program coordinator in August 2021. Eli has had the opportunity to lead in multiple camps involving youth. Eli graduated high school from Trinity Academy in North Portland. He is excited about the opportunity to work with a non-profit like PAL because he believes that it is essential to build positive relationships with law enforcement and the public. Eli hopes that someday he will pursue a career in law enforcement somewhere in the pacific northwest. Eli has won several awards for making an impact and teaching the youth of Clark County about traffic safety.
