5. Are you involved with any other Seattle nonprofit organizations?
I’m currently working with the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber’s Young Professional’s Network (YPN) to create a robust volunteer group.

We’re currently coordinating with FareStart and Treehouse.

Probably Starbucks since there is one on every corner downtown, but on the weekends I love Caffe Fiore in Ballard. Its ambiance is great and the coffee is too!

Love them all. I’m dying to get to Seahawks game this season.
9. What is your most (or first) memorable volunteer experience?
My first volunteering experience was at a homeless shelter in downtown Tacoma. My choir group sang holiday carols. I remember observing the joy on people’s faces.
10. What makes someone a Seattleite?
You’re a Seattleite if you can survive the dark, rainy winter; if you have an appreciation for the outdoors; and if you respect the various diverse cultures that fill the City.
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.
