Tricia Zigrang

CO-PRESIDENT | tricia@refvol.org
 

Tricia has lived in Portland for several decades and has enjoyed having many refugee families stay with her over the years. She saw firsthand how hard it was to find the resources needed to help her new refugee friends find the things they needed to better integrate and adapt to a new life and culture. A psychologist by training, Tricia is outgoing and loves to meet new people.
