With Meet LGMSD, we take you behind the scenes to introduce you to the folks who make us who we are—the Board, the Committees, the volunteers, and the staff. Each week, we plan to introduce you to one of the many individuals who contribute so much to La Grande Main Street, ultimately making La Grande a vibrant, stable and beautiful place to gather, shop, eat, work, live, and play.
This week, we continue our introductions with Board Member and Promotion Committee Member, Angie Brown Harris.
Angie Brown Harris was born and raised in La Grande and is a lifelong resident with a career in the health and wellness industry, first as a licensed massage therapist for over 20 years. She is currently a Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle Practitioner at Be Well Studio in La Grande, providing wellness coaching with diet lifestyle modifications to supplement traditional health care practices.
As an adult community member and a business owner, Angie wants those who live and visit here to experience the assets, services, and culture that are often overlooked. She feels that her perspective, personality and skills are serving the Board and community well.
So far, Angie’s favorite part of being a part of La Grande Main Street has been connecting and growing relationships with the other Board and committee members. Creating fun, unique, and health-focused events has been very fulfilling to her as well. Right now, that includes the organization of the inaugural Shamrock Shuffle 5K/10K event to be held on Saturday, March 18th.
