Meet the Board – Monica Choy Salazar

“Meet the board” is a series of posts to help you get to know the members of your Eliot Neighborhood Association Board.

Monica Choy Salazar

Monica has lived in the Eliot neighborhood since May 2017 and has worked here since August 2013. She just joined the board in October and we’re excited that she was willing to be elected as our Recorder. She is happy to live and work in Eliot and wants to be more involved in the community here.

She’s interested in making art more accessible to the neighborhood in the form of murals and other public art. She is also concerned about racial equity and nurturing the existing community in Eliot during a time of increased development and change in Portland. Monica has been working in the arts for eleven years. She runs a shared art studio space called ACTION Studios in the North Coast Seed Building with her partner Souther Salazar. When she’s not working she loves to cook, dance, travel, spend time in nature, and meet new people!
