Dalia Quintana

My name is Dalia Quintana, and being a part of the After School Care Program team as a youth assistant for the past year has been wonderful! A bit about me: I’ve grown up in this community. I'm a recent graduate from Neah-Kah-Nie High School, and am now continuing my education at Tillamook Bay Community College. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors and quality time with my family!

Angie Terry

Hello Oregon, my name is Angela (Angie) Terry, I moved here from Minnesota last September and was lucky enough to join the NCRD team right away as a youth assistant. I have worked with youth for many years as a Daycare Assistant, Para, Coach, and as a volunteer in the classroom as a teacher would need assistance. Moving here with me are my 3 children who are active in extracurricular activities as well as sports which keeps me in touch and up to date with the community and happenings in the area. I enjoy being outdoors with my family, crafting, and traveling in my off time. I look forward to the challenge of bringing youth, sports, and community together after being closed in from covid for so long.
