Nova Newcomer

Nova Newcomer's first political opus was a short essay (which she still has in her possession) in 4th grade on Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. A Political Science degree, several hundred pages and a career in communication later, Nova is currently doing what she loves best — providing people with tools to communicate better about important policy issues and helping women develop their leadership potential.

A strategic communication consultant, Nova has worked in various capacities for local non-profits as well as small and large businesses. She has been active behind the scenes as a volunteer and contributor to local campaigns and organizations that advocate for women. Nova is also a member of the 2010 Emerge Oregon class.

Nova is a loyal fan of the Trail Blazers (from birth), a baseball fanatic and a proud resident of North Portland with her husband and young son.
