On May 11th, the WCC will host a public meeting with special guest, State Senator Scott White. We’ll also be holding an election for new or returning trustees. This is a bio for one of three candidates, Katie Traverse. You can also read about the other trustee candidates, Patti Wilma and Brian Turnbull.
Katie Traverse lives near Wedgwood Elementary School with her husband Keith and their three young children. She has served as an appointed trustee since December of 2009 and is the editor of the Wedgwood Echo. Next year she will serve as president of the Wedgwood Elementary PTA. Katie is currently staying at home with her children, but in her former life was an attorney at Perkins Coie, specializing in general litigation. Katie served on the Lakeside School Alumni Board from 2004 to 2006, and as its Vice President in 2007. Katie has a particular interest in creating safe walking routes in Wedgwood for students and all pedestrians, and loves working to empower and connect people in Wedgwood to make this an even better place to live. When she is not at home with the kids, you can find Katie at Javasti, jogging, or chasing her black pug, Gus, around the neighborhood. Katie is a graduate of Lakeside School, Middlebury College, and the University of Washington School of Law.
