Leslie Goodlow, Business Operations Manager

Leslie Goodlow joined Portland Housing Bureau as the Business Operations Manager in September of 2012. Leslie held progressively responsible jobs with Multnomah County during her 20 years there. She began her career at the County as a Mental Health Consultant with the Partner’s Project a multi-jurisdictional demonstration grant funded by SAMHSA. She moved into management and participated in the development of Multnomah County’s capitated mental health plan – CAPCare.

In 1998 she took over the Child and Adolescent Mental Health direct service programs for the County. In this role, she partnered with school districts across the county, Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice to improve services and outcomes in mental health care for children. Her last position with the County was serving as the Senior Manager in charge of Coordination, Safety and Intake Services for the Developmental Disabilities Services Division, which also included business operations and information technology. Leslie holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Grambling State University and a Master’s in Social Work from Portland State University.

She is very active in the community, most notably with the Portland Rose Festival Foundation, where she has been a board member since 1999 and served as President of the organization in 2007 for the Centennial Celebration. She is a member of the Portland Kaohsiung Sister City Association, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. Leslie has a tremendous personal and professional commitment to the communities we serve at PHB.
