An active volunteer throughout the Puget Sound area, Grace is an incredible role model for her two wonderful children, as well as to members of our community.

Outside of the office, Grace serves as a board member for Homeward Pet and will be the incoming board president in 2024. Previously, she served on the boards of Bellevue Boys and Girls Club and SplashForward, along with being a mentor with Mentorship Edge at UW Bothell for the past 3 years. In the case that she has any free time, Grace enjoys reading not-for-profit related board books and listening to TED Talks.
