Zalena Carr

Administrative Assistant

Working in a small office, we all wear many hats. Zalena’s role at the Meriwether Group ranges from overseeing the day-to-day execution of administrative tasks to supporting consultants with project based work. In addition, Zalena coordinates meetings, sends out invoices, processes payments, and even has time to greet clients and visitors with a smile. There isn’t a hat that doesn’t fit, she wears them all, from the in-office DJ to creating and distributing social media posts.

Zalena graduated from the University of Portland with a degree in Business Administration with a focus on finance.

When she is not in the office she is spending time with her family. She and her husband have a son who loves all things sports and a feisty little girl.
