Kimberly Bergstrom (she/her) – Executive Director
After 17 years of working in advertising and marketing, Kimberly made the decision to move to the nonprofit realm. She was fortunate enough to apply her corporate sales and development skills to work at Special Olympics Oregon. There she experienced firsthand the power of sport as the vehicle for inclusion, equity, and acceptance, and she fell in love with supporting mission work.
Kimberly has been with Active Children Portland for over four years and is dedicated to programmatic improvements, including getting more girls in the game, reducing inequities in education and health for under-served populations, and improving access to healthy, locally-sourced foods. In her free time, she enjoys the outdoors, sewing, woodblock carving, and spending time with her rescue dog, Sneak.
Dee Wallace (she/her) – Community Engagement Facilitator
With experience spanning across various philanthropic focus areas and even the globe, Dee Wallace discovered while volunteering in Berenty, Madagascar, the true connection that drives her commitment in all focus areas – COMMUNITY! Whether it be environmental stewardship, the arts, education, or disease, the one thing that has always been present is community, and that the communities most impacted are those living in under-served and under-represented areas. With her experience and skills, Dee brings a passion for project management, relentless advocacy for historically marginalized and disadvantaged communities, and the zeal to successfully deliver innovative solutions to the complexities of community engagement, awareness, and funding. She also makes a mean vegetarian camping strata.
