I joined the College Club in Fall 2017 and have been an active member ever since. I have served on the CCS Finance Committee since Summer 2019 and have served on the CCS Social and House Committees since Fall 2019. As a member of the Social Committee I have helped plan and execute the many virtual and once again in-person social events offered by CCS in the last year and a half, including our virtual wine tastings and paint & sip event. I also worked with a small team of CCS Board and Social Committee members that developed the new Seahawks Season Ticket raffle program and planned our in-person Seahawks Raffle BBQ, which occurred just a few weeks ago. My work on the Finance Committee has included helping to steer CCS through the financial turmoil caused by the COVID 19 crisis. In the last year we have acquired two PPP loans, successfully completed and paid for dry dock, and managed the financial challenges caused by member attrition due to the pandemic and government mandated closures. Our Club has not only survived the storm of the last year, but we have grown our virtual offerings and member benefits despite these challenges. I am proud of the work our CCS committees have done and am thankful to have played a small part in our success. I now hope to increase my service to the CCS community by joining the Board of Trustees.
I hold a BA in Political Economy from the University of Washington (2013), where I was also a four year member of the UW Men’s Rowing Team, with whom I won four IRA National Championships. I started my career working as a business analytics consultant in Germany, where I implemented financial solutions for large and small German and multi-national European corporations. I moved back to Washington in 2017 and continue to work in business analytics and financial consulting.
I am an avid social and gym member of CCS and a frequent patron of our weekly happy hours. While I consider myself a social CCS member, I have a deep love of rowing and am dedicated to supporting our local rowing community. I love the many offerings that our Club provides, both to our social and rowing members. It is unique a place to gather, exercise, and socialize on the Seattle waterfront, and I have developed many great friendships as a member here. My goal as a future board member is to increase the frequency and diversity of CCS’s social events, support our rowing members’ passion for rowing, look for new opportunities to offer quality programming and benefits for all of our members, and continue to assist Club management in making sound financial decisions for the benefit of our Club. I thank each member who has taken the time to vote in this year’s election and look forward to seeing you all in person at the Club in the future.
