Kelly Murrin – Job Coach
Originally from the Chicagoland area, I graduated with a BA in English and Creative Writing, So I am passionate about words and love to talk. NO topics are off limits with me. Philosophy, spirituality, politics, life, love, or revolution. I enjoy movies and music and can’t get enough of either in my life. I have a dog and keep bees and chickens. I strive to use compassionate communication every day and believe in the full expression of all human beings. I try to be a stand for the best we can achieve in this lifetime and I know that we do that better together than alone. We all are perfect the way we are right now. And we can choose to celebrate that every day. I play Dungeons and Dragons like a champ. I love being a part of the Bridge City Mentor family because of how authentic this work is and how it helps me grow.
Kristina Schaffer – Job Developer
I’ve been an Oregonian since 1993, when I started at U of O studying foreign languages. The daughter of a German immigrant, a love of languages and travel was instilled in me at a young age. I love to immerse myself in other cultures and meet new people. I’m an extrovert to the core, and delight in making new friendships. I have a background in sales and procurement, and speak three languages- German, Spanish and English. In my off-time, my husband and I enjoy walks with our dog and cooking together.
Kai Webb – Job Developer
I have been with Bridge City Mentors since 2016 and it is an accomplishment that I am incredibly proud of. I was born and raised in the great PNW and it is an honor to be serving the community I grew up in! When I’m not looking for the perfect career for my clients; I am usually enjoying nature with my canine companion Lila. Her and I love the great outdoors and sometimes we find ways to bring nature inside with house plants! I am so grateful for the freedom my career has given me to explore communities all over Oregon and build relationships with people near and far. I have truly found my dream career and I want to help people do exactly the same thing. My passion for Job Development comes from the passion of others that I have worked with and watching them grow into the best version of themselves. If you’re looking for a purpose, to accomplish a career goal, or just find your next step in life; we can do that together. If you choose me as your job developer one of the things that I can commit to from the very beginning is that I will never give up until we find something that brings you exactly what you’re looking for.
