People on the Move
Jennifer Wilson has joined The Corvallis Clinic’s QuickCare convenience clinic (www.quickcare.clinic).
Wilson was a family nurse practitioner at Physicians’ Medical Center, P.C., in McMinnville from 2013 to earlier this year. She was a registered nurse in Pediatric Acute Care in Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel in Portland from 2007 to 2013, during which she had stints as a charge RN and an RN preceptor coordinator.
She initially wanted to become a registered dietitian, but realized she wanted more direct patient care and decided to become a nurse, though nutrition still is an interest of hers. She eventually became a family nurse practitioner to increase her autonomy and scope of practice.
She earned a Master of Nursing degree from Oregon Health & Science University in 2012, a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Linfield College in 2006, and a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Food Management from Oregon State University in 2004. Both she and her husband originally are from the area.
The Community Service Consortium’s Linn Benton Food Share recently received a $5,000 Bank of America Charitable Foundation grant to fight hunger in the mid-Willamette Valley.
Every year, Food Share distributes more than 5 million pounds of food.
Take a Bow
Linn-Benton Community College President Greg Hamann recently was named Pacesetter of the Year by the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations, District 7.
The award recognizes a president or CEO at a two-year community or technical college who has demonstrated leadership and support in the area of college communications and marketing.
Hamann was nominated for his support of initiatives that improve the college’s image, including the backing of investment in research and design for LBCC’s award-winning “Inspired” branding and redesigned web site, and for his support of implementing a system that communicates with prospective students.
The nomination also noted Hamann’s work to bring a new focus on completion to the college, his work on state and national initiatives like Win-Win, Foundations of Excellence and Achieving the Dream, and in numerous partnerships with K-12, university and chambers of commerce partners, including the “Pipeline” program, a collaboration involving K-12 districts, LBCC and local industry.
