Briefly describe what you do in your role with GTCF

Co-Chair Board Alumni Committee

What other jobs or positions have you held?

Over the years, I have served on the boards of many different community organizations serving Tacoma/Pierce County, including the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, United Way, Goodwill, the Chamber of Commerce, and Rotary. Most recently, I serve on the board of the Tacoma Art Museum and Tacoma Garden Club, and during the election season on The News Tribune Editorial Board.

Outside of GTCF, what enjoyable activity do you engage in? What brings you joy?

I love living in Tacoma with my husband Stuart Grover and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. I enjoy traveling, having visited all seven continents, reading, walking in a new neighborhood every day, trying new recipes, and connecting with people. I am passionate about helping people discover their potential through education and experience and moving on to find meaningful work and a purposeful existence; Watching TCC students achieve these goals has been enormously rewarding.
