Three Fast Facts

2. I played the piano for 13ish years.
3. I think coffee ice cream has healing powers.

More about Beeta
I am a first-generation Iranian-American, and I have lived in Portland since I was 5 years old. I moved away for college and grad school, both times heading to the east coast. Once I completed my education, I moved back home to Oregon because nothing really compares to the PNW. Go Thorns!

What I do at CBI
I am the Bnei Mitzvah program coordinator, and I am happy to answer lifecycle program questions.
