Sara K. Pennington
Finance and Operations Department Portland Main Office
I am a member of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. I joined the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission in May, 2010. My current role as the Property and Facilities Assistant is to support all staff in the day-to-day operations. I ensure staff are better able to meet the demands of their job by providing assistance in ordering supplies, equipment, vehicles, etc.., needed to do their work.
Prior to working at CRITFC I was employed by the American Red Cross for eleven years. Beginning as a Hospital Services Coordinator, and then as a designated trainer working with new and incumbent staff. My skillset includes a strong background in a regulated laboratory setting as well as extensive knowledge of biomedical processes and public health.
Outside of work I enjoy backpacking, hiking with my two dogs, canoeing, reading, woodworking, and road trips.
