Hello Everyone, I am honored to be joining you in stewardship and education programs to protect and nurture our precious resources keeping Puget Sound a thriving environment. Sound Water Stewards is a volunteer-driven organization and I look forward to listening and learning from each of you. My goal is to find ways we can best collaborate to deliver on our mission by making your time as a volunteer satisfying, meaningful, and fun.
Let me introduce myself.
I am a life-long resident of the Pacific Northwest and have spent the past few decades living at the waters’ edge on Whidbey Island. I have two adult sons, Sam and Jake, who graduated from South Whidbey High School, and a dog named Kona. My colors are purple and gold as a graduate of the University of Washington and love the seasons where the call is “Go Huskies”! Professionally, I have had two significant career paths: media marketing and non-profit management. I had the pleasure of a long-term position with the Girl Scout organization where I started as the Island County Area Manager and was promoted into positions as Regional Director and then VP of Community Engagement. My earlier years were in Seattle media with 20 years at KOMO Radio and Television where I held many positions including Director of Community Relations.
This is being written on Day 3 in my new role as your Executive Director. I welcome your phone calls (425-299-0943) and emails (email@example.com). I hope to meet you on July 24 at the Sound Water Stewards Annual Picnic.
