Elyce Hues is a Silverton Union High School graduate with a B.A. from the University of Oregon in Political Science and International Studies. Elyce has worked in the green building sector for the past decade and a half; previously, her profession was in community services and engagement around environmental health and justice. Elyce has studied and worked abroad in Germany and Mexico, and she will always jump at the chance to converse in German or Spanish! (Bitte, sag hallo! / Por favor dime hola!) Elyce moved back to Silverton in 2010, where she lives with her two children. She co-founded Sustainable Silverton under the mentorship of Charles Baldwin in 2016, and is honored and delighted to this day to be part of the bright, caring group of people who make up Sustainable Silverton. Elyce is also a local musician (performing under the stage name, Elyce Tyler, for her dearly departed soul-dog).
