Lane Thompson

VIDA/MCSP Program Manager

Tel: (503) 537-0319 ext. #330

As the VIDA/MCSP program manager at CASA, and student loan coach at Innovative Changes, Lane serves a dual role. This suits her well, as she is passionate about consumer advocacy and protection, as well as asset building in the name of erasing the racial wealth gap.  Working one on one with student borrowers gives her the chance to support folks directly, while her VIDA and MCSP work focuses on training specialists in our statewide IDA Network.

Lane is a Portland State University graduate.  Her background as a housing counselor, financial educator, barista, and avid learner all come into play in her work at CASA. In her free time, she likes hanging out at the park with her dog, going to hip-hop shows, and solving the world’s problems over drinks with friends.
