Meet Miho M., Portland, Oregon Area Consultant

Meet Miho M., Portland, Oregon Area Consultant

Miho grew up in Japan and moved to Portland in 1992. She fell in love with Portland because of its beautiful green spaces, welcoming people and diverse culture.  Portland is located so close to the Oregon Coast and the mountains on the East that you can ski during the day and enjoy a bonfire on the beach at night!  Miho has been an Area Consultant for IPR for almost 2 years. She loves meeting so many people from different countries and cultures, it helps her broaden her perspective. 

Every time she sees her Relocating Employees’ (and family's) smiles and excitement at the end of the relocation process, Miho feels happy that she was able to make their transition a bit easier.

In her spare time, Miho loves baking cakes and desserts with her daughter.  She also enjoys a quiet Sunday morning with her cat Leo, her favorite book and a cup of coffee.
