Riley Tate

Friend

Riley is originally from St. Louis, Missouri. She graduated from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska with a degree in sociology and moved to Tulsa, OK to be a high school teacher. From there, she followed her partner and their dreams out to the West Coast for what she keeps calling her grand adventure. She's passionate about working with people and building strong relationships.

What Riley appreciates most about Friends of the Children—Portland is the fully thought out and well-rounded approach to mentorship and working within the community. There is a truly comprehensive and inclusive message behind what FriendsPDX does. She is excited to fully embrace the nine Core Assets and plant roots here in the Portland community.

When she is not working, Riley continues to find joy by spending time with others, including her two dogs, partner, and roommate. She love game nights, painting, breathing fresh air, and discovering new things.
