Alice Cuprill-Comas

Board Member

She / Her


Action without vision is only passing time, vision without action is merely day dreaming, but vision with action can change the world.
— Nelson Mandela

Alice is driven by a belief that together — and as individuals — we must identify, recognize and abolish structural barriers that result in inequities, poverty and distrust in society.

A native of Mayagüez, Puerto Rico, Alice migrated to the United States at the age of 10. Family (broadly defined), public education, hard work and good luck in having her work recognized is what brought Alice to this place and time.

Throughout her career, Alice has remained passionate and committed to making a difference in this state we all call home. With nearly three decades of experience, Alice brings strong expertise and a well-versed background in business, nonprofit governance and corporate law to Meyer.

"As an Afro-Latina from Puerto Rico, I recognize the vibrancy of the many communities that make Oregon their home. Meyer’s support of organizations that contribute to a flourishing and equitable Oregon is vital to strengthening our society."

Alice earned a bachelor of arts degree with honors from the University of Texas in Austin before attaining a law degree from Lewis & Clark College.

She is the executive vice president and general counsel at Oregon Health & Science University and was appointed by Gov. Kate Brown as president of the Port of Portland Commission.

Alice serves as a board member for Literary Arts and the Portland Book Festival (formerly Wordstock). She also serves as a member of the Oregon Council for Hispanic Advancement.

Alice joined Meyer’s board of trustees in 2019.
