There’s a Charter School Capital story that years ago, an interviewee was told, “we’re looking for another Dott.” Despite our best efforts, we were finally forced to admit that Dott is one of a kind. A New York City resident for more than a decade, Dott used her B.A. in Theater for scenery painting, set design, and costume creation in productions all along the east coast. She later developed an appreciation for the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest and settled near her sister in Oregon, becoming a costumer for her lucky nieces. Now a long-time resident of Portland, she worked as a legal secretary for 13 years before the opportunity arose to join Charter School Capital. She finds joy in the fact that the organization really helps people. She also enjoys hunting for waterfalls outdoors, singing in her choir, and is an avid (if not adept) golfer.
