about author Rhiannon West Chamberlain

Rhiannon is a native Oregonian who grew up exploring the nooks and crannies of the Oregon Coast and daydreaming in Powell’s City of Books. She now lives in NE Portland with her husband and her new baby boy and looks forward to teaching him to love Oregon as much as she does. Rhiannon attended both the University of Oregon and Portland State University, where she studied Journalism and Mass Media. She claims to ‘bleed green’ and happily cheers for both the Ducks and the Vikings every chance she gets. In her free time, Rhiannon enjoys sipping Oregon Pinot, finding new restaurants, bargain hunting and trying new recipes – sometimes successfully. She has a child-like enthusiasm for trying new things and rediscovering old ones – such as skee-ball, mini golf, and big slides.

    Wish you had more coverage on your opening page about the Wine Country wines and it’s B&B lodging facilities which truly offer a diverse and exciting destination. Seem the focus is alway the Coast and Southern Oregon. To truly support regional tourism and it’s travelers also it’s members all areas should be given even coverage–

    Thanks for the opportunity. “Great Touring Business for all”!

    You know there are other places besides Portland for good food in Oregon! Just Portland in the brunch story. Broaden it out and it will be even better.
