Emily Mercer, Database & Information Manager

Emily is our Database & Information Manager, ensuring that our recordkeeping is clean and up to date. She has a passion for nonprofit technology and takes great pleasure in building scalable systems to achieve the 1000 Friends mission. Emily has a master's degree in records management and archives, and is a certified Salesforce administrator. She cares deeply about maintaining well-ordered systems to enhance decision making power for the rest of her team. Emily loves to apply these skills at 1000 Friends, working to support her love of Oregon, thoughtful land use planning, environmental stewardship, and the nonprofit sector.

As Governor Tom McCall famously said, "Oregon is an inspiration." For Emily, Oregon's got it all: amazing cities, forests, mountains, coastline, prairie lands, and deserts. She spends a lot of time outdoors and the rich, abundant natural beauty is always an inspiration.

In Oregon, her favorite place is the trails of Mt. Hood. Beyond Oregon, her favorite place is Iceland.

Away from work, Emily is likely on her bike or watching movies!
