That is tough, too many favorites! But I’ll narrow it down to a few: Pike Place Market, Green Lake, Burke Gilman Trail.

3. Your first interaction with Seattle Works was…?

Pretty darn cool! It was nice to find something that let me do what I wanted but also introduce me to a ton of people!

4. What’s the best meal you’ve eaten in the Seattle area?

Oh my, well I LOVE food..but I would have to say dinner at Canlis – AMAZING! It was a treat from our boss. I also have to add my favorite sushi places Umi Sake House & Ohana’s.

9.  What is your most (or first) memorable volunteer experience?

My most memorable experience was when our team got a chance to work with Operational Sack Lunch at the Compass Center. Working and learning from Chef Paul was amazing. It truly touched my heart being able to cook for the residents and to hear Chef Paul’s story of the organization and how he gave up his career to do something more meaningful.

10. What makes someone a Seattleite?

You can have regular conversations about the weather, you have hiked/or some other outdoor sport, you drink coffee, you recycle, you wear shorts when it’s sunny but it’s STILL only 60 degrees outside!

This weekly 10 question profile is Seattle Works way of highlighting and saying THANK YOU to all that our volunteers, leaders, community partners, board members, committee members, etc do for our community! We’re asking the same 10 questions to various Seattle Works participants as a fun way to feature the different ways to be involved with Seattle Works and in Seattle.
