I love walking by the MOHAI, but Gasworks Park is nice, too
3. Your first interaction with Seattle Works was…?
I took the HandsOn Leadership course three weeks after I got here!
4. What’s the best meal you’ve eaten in the Seattle area?
There is a really great Iranian place in the market in Post Alley. Delish and cheap!

I am an Event Coordinator Leadership Contact for The World Is Fun and I work with the Girl Scouts of Western Washington for my Seattle Works project.

8. Mariners, Sounders, or Seahawks?
I’m a hockey fan, but my husband tells me we’re headed to a lot of Mariners games
9. What is your most (or first) memorable volunteer experience?
When I was traveling, I volunteered to help show some kids something at a farm show (they asked for volunteers before we got there). I got to shear a sheep with electric clippers! It was wild.
10. What makes someone a Seattleite?
They like to apologize for things that aren’t that bad. Having moved from Chicago, a lot of Seattleites apologized to us for the weather. Having been a New Yorker, a lot of them apologized for how people can act. I find both the weather and the people delightful here.
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.
P.S. In case you’re interested, the inspiration behind these interviews comes from NY Mag’s weekly blog post.
