Oleya believes in the power of education to change lives and wants to do everything possible to remove barriers for students reaching their education goals. She comes from a family of educators who have taught at all levels – from elementary school to adult learners. At OCF, Oleya assists students with scholarship questions, enters student data and processes scholarship payments. Her previous experience includes development work for two arts-based nonprofits, retail sales and customer service.


Outside of work she likes to work on crafty projects, learn about Japanese culture and eat all of Portland’s delicious food.
