Smith in Capitol Hill. Great food. Good drinks. Always an interesting crowd.

3. Your first interaction with Seattle Works was…?

I was invited to the 2007 SWANK auction by Amy Wales and sat at Lee Harper’s table. I tried my luck at the ring toss and was not very successful.

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

The bone-in rib eye at the new Joule was amazing. I literally picked up the bone and started to gnaw it.

5. Are you involved with any other Seattle nonprofit organizations?

I volunteer with Puget Sound Grantwriters Association and help plan their annual conference. I am also a member of Northwest Development Officers Association.

6. Which coffee shop do you most frequent?

Victrola, the now not-so-secret Starbucks in Capitol Hill, the Starbucks in the Armory at Seattle Center, and Forza in Fisher Plaza. I was a regular at the Starbucks next to Swedish Hospital (Hi Jo and Patrick!).

7. What three words best describe your experience with Seattle Works?

Always say yes.

8. Mariners, Sounders, or Seahawks?

Sounders! 113 forever.

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

I volunteered on a bald eagle float trip this past January. It was amazing seeing more than 40 bald eagles while floating down the river on a very, very, cold morning.

10. What makes someone a Seattleite?

Always carrying an umbrella in your bag and never using it.

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.
