Tyanne is a teacher, writer, photographer, traveler, dreamer. She obtained her M.S. in Sociology from Portland State University and is currently living and working in South Korea. Committed to equality and social justice, she was excited to be invited to participate in the film. Though it was challenging, it has led to some much-needed personal and spiritual growth that she hopes will ripple out and positively affect the community.
For the last 5 years Tyanne has been back in Portland working for the OHSU medical school after a few years teaching in Korea. She recently started a new position with the CDC Foundation working with the tribes of the PNW on Covid response projects, and is really excited about this opportunity to serve. She and her girlfriend live together with their dog, two cats, and four chickens. Tyanne says it’s been really fun to have an urban farm while working from home.
