Chief Operations Officer
Bridget Brown, the Chief Operations Officer at Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness, has over 15 years of experience serving marginalized/at-risk populations, with comprehensive expertise in program planning, monitoring and evaluation.
Her focus on individuals with special needs began during her undergraduate studies in Southern California where she did field-work using horses for therapy. She then went on to serve in the Peace Corps in Armenia working to address the stigma and isolation affecting young people with disabilities.
Bridget’s passion for adventure and service has taken her around the world but she has returned to her hometown – a tiny frontier county in Northeast Oregon – to apply her expertise to our local community mental health program. She has put down roots and plans to stay and raise her three children in this unique and nurturing community.
