Travis Weedman, Co-Chair

I'm originally from Wisconsin and moved to Portland in 1999. I've lived in the Alameda neighborhood with my wife, Arielle, and our two children since 2015.  I am an interior designer and run a design studio with Arielle.  In my spare time, I like to work in the yard, enjoy good food with friends, and spend time with my family. Alameda has many wonderful qualities but the multi-generational mix of people and families that live in the neighborhood is really special. 


Steve backer, Co-Chair

I’m an Alameda dad of two young girls, husband of an Alameda Elementary School teacher and a Real Estate Broker with Windermere Realty Trust.  In the Spring and Fall, I coach my daughter’s soccer team, and love spending time in the woods hunting for mushrooms with my dog Sally.  What I love most about our neighborhood?  The people!  I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I’m so fortunate to live in a neighborhood where people are so genuinely kind, caring, and welcoming. 


Mariah Dula, Secretary, NECN Rep

A native Oregonian, my family moved to Alameda in 2013 to enjoy all the best Oregon has to offer: proximity to family, year round outdoor recreation and civic life. I love being a part of a community where neighborliness thrives, families walk to school, and livability is a priority—and where I enjoy a short bike commute. My professional background is sustainability and I work in higher education. I serve in leadership positions with several non-profits including serving as the president of the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods Board.


Charles Rice, Treasurer

I’ve served on the Alameda board for more than five years and organize the annual spring clean-up.
