Ryan considers himself an Oregonian that was born in the wrong state. Although he was born in California Ryan will always call Oregon home. Ryan was introduced to peer support after he had some personal experience with mental health struggles. After getting connected to a few local resources, Ryan heard about an internship with Folktime. After completing his internship at Clackamas Mental Health Center (CMHC) Walk-In, Ryan supported peers in his community at Stewart Center in Oregon City. We are excited to have Ryan back at CHMC.
In his off time Ryan can be found on stage playing bass in a local Portland band, traveling to Seattle to visit friends or hanging around Portland with his bandmates.
