Bradley Angle Welcomes Amber Shoebridge to Board

Amber Shoebridge

Bradley Angle is happy to welcome Amber Shoebridge to our Board of Directors!
Amber is responsible for media and community relations at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, a hospital specializing in critical medicine such as trauma, open heart surgery and burn care.

She is also a member of the 2016 GlamHer committee! We want to Acknowledge you for your commitment to Bradley Angle!

Here’s a brief Q&A with Amber:

Q: What is your role at Bradley Angle and how did you get involved?

A: I’m currently a Bradley Angle board member. I became involved as a way to more closely connect the two organizations and neighbors. I was impressed after meeting another board member, Kate Ertmann and my interest only continued to grow the more I learned. I was especially impressed with Bradley Angle’s Economic Empowerment Program and the job fair that they offer for survivors.

Q: Why do you believe the work Bradley Angle does is important? Why did you want to get involved?

A: Before joining Bradley Angle, I wasn’t well versed on the large and lasting impact of domestic violence. However, I was immediately impressed in the first meeting I attended when I realized Bradley Angle was approaching the problems associated with domestic violence from a multitude of angles. I’m proud to be a part of an organization that isn’t afraid to think outside the box. 

Q: Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.

A: I was born in a log cabin in a remote area of Lane County, Oregon with a couple of midwives and ended up in a career working with specialized physicians that are doing cutting edge medicine every day.

Q: What is your role at Bradley Angle and how did you get involved?

A: I am a board member at Bradley Angle. I got involved with Bradley Angle through my participation in PAALF (Portland African American Leadership Forum). PAALF is a convener of African American leaders around a public policy agenda that impacts the community in the areas of housing & economic development, education, health, and civic engagement/leadership. Upon completing the one-year Leadership Academy, PAALF encourages its members to join a local board and to get involved in the community. Bradley Angle’s mission resonated with Charniece and she instantly knew she wanted to be a part of the organization!

Q: Why do you believe the work Bradley Angle does is important? Why did you want to get involved?

A: Bradley Angle is not only a shelter, but a holistic agency that works to empower survivors to thrive beyond their current situation. I wanted to be part of the momentum that supports and advocates for those that are often silenced in society. I also appreciate the fact that Bradley Angle is intentional about creating and supporting culturally-specific programs, such as Healing Roots.

Q: Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.

A: I’m pretty reserved on the outside, but I am a huge thrill seeker on the inside! I have skydived, zip-lined, parasailed, run half-marathons and I recently completed the 2015 Warrior Dash. I am always looking for more ways to push my limits!

At least I don’t have to check “Divorced”
On a lifetime of official forms
But I remember the wedding ritual,

The marriage failed within a year.

At least the cats can’t ask me
Why she doesn’t come home any more
But they follow me with puzzled eyes

I can’t seem to provide them a stable home.

At least I have my own career,
