Angela received her Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences and Communication from Portland State University.

Since the loss of her mother to suicide in 2016 she has dedicated her time and efforts to sharing her story by bringing tough topics to the forefront of conversation. This began with the opening of a shelter for survivors of domestic violence in honor of her mother. The Tami Best Emergency Shelter was created for survivors of domestic violence fleeing abusive situations.
In 2017, Angela founded a nonprofit, Sisters in Public Health to connect all women in Public Health. She currently serves on two boards: Ashley Jadine Foundation working to prevent suicide among teens and Bradley Angle working to create communities free of domestic violence. Hearing her reflect on her journey towards service and healing gives those who hear her a renewed and inspired sense of purpose, grounded in her shared resilience.
