Meet our Board
Kimberly Sieffert - Board Director/President. Kimber has made Portland her home for the past five years after moving to Oregon from Dickinson, ND to enhance her career. She truly loves living in the Pacific NW. Kimber brings to PCM an extensive history working within the non-profit sector and combines her music background and education to help Portland Chamber Music grow and thrive. Besides her professional experience, Kimber also combines her passion for music and theater with her desire to provide opportunities for everyone to experience and enhance their awareness and appreciation of Chamber Music.
Kristin Springer - Board Director/Secretary. Kristin’s passion for non-profit work and volunteerism emerged in college while pursuing her B.S. and M.S. degrees at Western Michigan University, however her love of music started much earlier. Kristin spent her childhood listening to her aunt play the piano for the local Methodist church, dancing to her father singing with the band ‘Endless Summer’ (the 50s and 60s cover band he sang with for going on 33 years now), and singing “Happy Birthday” in at least 4-part harmony during family dinners in Michigan. Music was the glue that held her family together, and is the reason she is committed to serving as Secretary for this organization and collaborating to bring music to underserved communities of Portland.
Deb Lambeth - Board Director/Treasurer. Growing up in a small town “behind the Redwood Curtain”, Deb always liked to build things. It was this love of planning, and a knack for numbers, which lead her to get her BS in Environmental Resources Engineering from Humboldt State Univ. Deb now works for the State of Oregon helping water utilities secure funding for infrastructure improvements. For Portland Chamber Music, Deb oversees all aspects of the nonprofit’s finances, including the development and management of budgets, preparation of financial statements and pursuit of grant funding. Deb loves Portland and is honored to work along-side such dedicated volunteers in pursuit of this important work.
