Staff Spotlight: Kimberly Lyons



This quarter we are pleased to recognize our estate planning legal assistant, Kimberly Lyons, for her volunteer work with The Aperture Project. The Aperture Project is an organization that connects children through photography and writing; broadening their world view while promoting tolerance and understanding. The mission of The Aperture Project is to create positive community connections among young people with diverse backgrounds.

As a hobby photographer, Kim is passionate about Aperture’s mission, showing children how photography can be used as a vehicle of communication with the potential to expand world views and help celebrate our differences as people, while also discovering ways in which we share common ground. Using her organizational skills, passion for photography, and experience in non-profit grant writing, Kim serves as the Director of Fund Development for The Aperture Project.

This summer, The Aperture Project will host a scavenger hunt to encourage North Portland youth to explore and connect with the rich history of their community in St Johns. The event will be held on August 9th from 10:00am to 3:00pm. Visit www.apertureproject.org to learn more.

Way to go, Kim! Thank you for all you do to make our firm and the Portland arts community a better place for our youth!
