    Arielle Nuñez

    Recruiting & Employment Support

    "My favorite part of working for Express is helping people find rewarding, stable work that they enjoy. Work is an everyday thing-getting to do something you love makes that worthwhile. Find out what your passionate about and pursue it!"

    We welcomed Arielle to the team in June 2019. Arielle is a hardworking, dedicated, compassionate, and enthusiastic individual who also loves fiercely and is extremely loyal to those around her. She is also the kind of person who can seem quiet at first but warms up quickly is eager to engage.


    Ariella was born in Tampa, Florida but moved to Oregon in 1997. She graduated from Oregon State University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with minors in Business and Biology. From that point on she lived in Corvallis until deciding to move to Hillsboro this year.

    Before joining our Express team, Arielle worked as a General Manager and a Hotel Front Desk Agent. She also has HR, office assistance, and reception experience.


    When Arielle isn't helping local job seekers find their dream jobs, you can find her cooking and baking for the people in her life. She enjoys watching movies, TV, and reading. Being the empathetic person that she is, she can connect with the characters as if they are real people.

    Something Unique

    Arielle originally planned on going into theatre. She loves to act and has recently started writing screenplays.


    Arielle has four siblings. Two are by blood and two are the children of her parents' best friends.

    Best Skillset

    Arielle has exceptional written communication skills. For her, words and books are both the strongest weapon and the soothing salve.

    Jordan Thompson

    Business Developer

    "My favorite part about working with Express is being a part of an amazing team who share a passion for community and the people in it. Being in a position where I get to partner with clients in this community to problem-solve, contribute solutions, as well as to provide hope and opportunity to the people of this community is why I love doing what I do."

    Express Hillsboro welcomed Jordan Thompson to the team in January 2021 as our new Business Developer. Jordan has a competitive spirit and holds himself to a very high standard, which translates seamlessly in his roles within our office. He also loves helping others and working closely with the public to provide them with hope and opportunities for growth. Since his first day, Jordan has come into the office motivated and ready to help each associate he meets. Every person Jordan encounters finds themselves in a more positive headspace than they did before, and for that, we are grateful to have someone like Jordan on our team!

    Before Express, he spent most of his career working in fast-paced customer service-centric environments where he had daily interactions with the public, which allowed him to interact with others on a personal level. From there, he established a role where he was able to recruit and build teams within our community that could continue to give back. In that role, Jordan got the chance to mentor young professionals, establish leadership and personal development training, and develop a professional pipeline for franchisees in the Northwest Region for his previous employer.

    Jordan was born and raised in Beaverton, Oregon. As a child, he dreamed of getting into politics, which he is still open to in the future, despite the negative connotation that can come with those positions. Jordan is a huge family man driven by a need to love and provide for his family and those closest to him. Jordan married his best friend, Vendela, in 2018, and together, they have two shepherd mixes-a girl named Bella and a boy named Kylo. During their downtime, they often find themselves out in nature, hiking around the mountains, or surfing the Oregon coast.

    Vendela Thompson

    Employment Specialist

    "The rewarding part of working with Express would have to be working with the people I get to help find a good job for. Of course, it has its challenges, but that is what makes it that much more special when they get the position or just the opportunity to explore."

    The Hillsboro Express office welcomed Vendela Thompson to the team as one of our Employment Specialists. She brings with her five and a half years of customer service experience, having worked her way up to Shift Lead, Assistant Manager, and then Manager of a local coffee bar store where she grew their sales tremendously. Since joining Express, Vendela has shown that she is someone we can count on to always put 100% effort into everything she does.

    Vendela is a native to the PNW region, having only lived as far as Ridgefield, WA because she wants to stay close to her family. She comes from a huge family, all of which are very close. In 2018 Vendela married her husband, and together, they have one amazing pup and a baby on the way! In Vendela's spare time, she loves to take adventures in her spare time and is known to take day trips to new places whenever possible.

    Adalberto Ramirez

    Employment Specialist

    "I love the people I work with. It feels like a family, and the most rewarding part is being able to help the community."

    Adalberto joined the Express Hillsboro team as one of our Employment Specialists in September 2021. Adalberto has held various positions over the years and brings valuable experience in landscaping, sales, reception, banking, and customer service. In addition, Adalberto is family-oriented, passionate about helping people, and warm-hearted.

    Originally from a small town in Northern California called Smith River (home of the cleanest river in the US), Adalberto relocated with his girlfriend to Hillsboro to seek new opportunities and has been extremely pleased with the change in scenery.

    In his downtime, you can find Adalberto drawing and enjoying art and music, working out to stay healthy, and spending time with his loved ones. He is a part of a large family, and family is everything to him. Just like Adalberto, his family is some of the most welcoming people you'll ever treat strangers the same as they do their loved ones.
