Governor Appoints New Members to Oregon Tourism Commission
Governor Kate Brown has appointed two new members to the Oregon Tourism Commission (dba Travel Oregon), Mia Sheppard with Little Creek Outfitters and Greg Willitts with FivePine Lodge. Made up of nine members, the Commission provides expertise and sets policy direction for Travel Oregon staff.
Mia is an accomplished fly-fishing guide, mother and business owner. Mia and her husband Marty own Little Creek Outfitters, a fly-fishing guide service founded in 2003. In 2017, Mia started a new business, Juniper River Adventures, to connect women and youth to the outdoors.
“A dose of the outdoors warms the heart and soul,” said Mia. “I’m honored to be part of the Oregon Tourism Commission and be a voice for outdoor recreation, rural communities and work with Travel Oregon and the Commission to support sustainable tourism that benefits Oregonians and visitors.”
