Human Resources Manager
My name is Michael Weiss and I joined Portland Mental Health & Wellness in April of 2020. Working in Human Resources has become a passion of mine because of the focus around people, so getting to join a team who prioritizes the care of the community is a dream come true. I was born in Corvallis, Oregon, and moved to the Portland area when I was still a toddler. After High School I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force which proved to be one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life, and after I was retired in 2011 I co-founded a nonprofit for veterans learning to live with PTSD. I have been blessed with unique experiences that have given me a wide range of exposure and look forward to learning from others and share my perspective whenever I can.
In my free time I love being in the outdoors, woodworking, or spending time with my family. Trying to be respectful and empathetic in all of my interactions is one of my main goals; you never know what someone else is going through and when you can be the better part of their day.
