Also a rabid community activist, she’s worked for dozens of causes related to homelessness, domestic violence, and the environment, just to name a few. She currently serves as Vice Chair of Thurston Conservation Voters, is an elected democratic PCO, and is the trumpet teaching artist for Student Orchestras of Greater Olympia (SOGO), as well as an avid musician and proud mother of a smart and talented 16-year old daughter. In her day job, she is staff to Thurston County Commissioner Karen Valenzuela.

Nick Woodson Originally from the land of great Mexican food, saguaro cacti, and John McCain, Nick Woodson landed in Olympia in search of great wisdom and a nose full of patchouli at The Evergreen State College. Happy to trade in his SPF 100 sunscreen for a nice gortex raincoat, Nick spent his academic career studying (mostly) Economics and Public Policy while reserving a little time for more fun academic pursuits such as sailing around the Puget Sound. With his degree completed, Nick loved the smiling faces and unending rain of the Pacific Northwest so much that he decided to stick around and spend his days working for political causes. Six years later, Nick has worked in the marbled halls of the Washington State Senate, in legislative and local government relations jobs, as a manager for progressive local, regional, and statewide campaigns, and, most recently, helping nonprofits with accounting work. Nick still lives in Olympia and considers himself one lucky dog to be joining the board of the Thurston County Progressive Network.
