Portland Loves you - Docia

We've teamed up with our local Portlanders for our blog series called Portland Loves You to share their stories, style, favorite places and tips. Get to know your neighbor because they're damn awesome!  We want to introduce you to Docia aka D, a Londoner living in Portland with great taste and amazing style. We're so happy she's made Portland her home and we think you will too.

I love connecting people and hopefully matching people with the right career move and team for them to thrive
Being able to find passionate, interesting people and explore how they can bring value to a team/environment/culture is pretty cool.

Name three things you need for a productive day. 

Lots of water, the option to move around (you can often find me doing the stairs in our office or stretching or something silly), and finally, a “to do list” that I can cross things off from 

How would you describe your style? 

Inspired and considered…Clean + Classic… big on accessories [details make an outfit].     

Who would you consider an inspiration? 

Anyone that is able to make their passions a reality that works for them.
