Jamie Melton, Communications Coordinator
Jamie supports Columbia Riverkeeper’s digital media communications efforts to engage communities to protect the Columbia River Basin. Over the course of her career, Jamie has worked at the intersection of small business and nonprofit development—supporting local and international organizations to plan and implement operational, marketing, and development strategies.
Jamie has a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Oregon. When not working on Riverkeeper campaigns, Jamie works with mission-oriented organizations on a variety of projects as a small business owner. She lives with her partner and pets in North Portland, with frequent trips to nature.
Riverkeeper’s team includes scientists, environmental lawyers, and community organizers. We work to organize and empower local communities, enforce environmental laws, and build strategic coalitions. Our mission is to protect and restore the Columbia River and all life connected to it.
