Our Team

Martha McElligott, Executive Assistant (she/her)

I provide administrative support to the executive director and am part of the warm and welcoming team at the front desk. I enjoy an ever evolving role where the task of filling the gaps is an engaging challenge! As a member of the Safety and EcoJustice Committees, I work with teams to ensure the safety of the staff community and to explore and limit the ecological impact JVC Northwest has on the environment.

Born and raised in rural Oregon by parents who stressed the importance of becoming contributing members of the community, I visit the elderly, serve at a community food pantry, and am a member of a group providing comfort quilts to those impacted by life transitions.  My most meaningful service is working with my husband to raise our two children to be mindful of others and the earth!
