Jinine Ramirez Cortez

Shelter Coordinator & Family Liaison







Jinine hails from sunny Los Angeles, CA, where she attended University of California, Davis, studying Genetics and Native American Studies. She also attended Academy of Art University, San Francisco, where she majored in Photography. Jinine has called Portland her home since 2007. She considers herself the “luckiest gal in the world” because her passion and profession are in perfect confluence. In her free time, Jinine enjoys going to concerts, searching for the perfect veggie burger, and hanging out with her Cardigan Corgi, Dayton, and her calico cat, Otis. She also has way too many records, comic books and “zines.” And she’s okay with that. She heartily believes that “kindness is magic.”
