This month SeaDoc welcomes two new board members, Ingrid Rasch and Dave Roberts.
Ingrid Rasch is a community activist and non-profit volunteer. She currently chairs the board of Earth Economics, a non-profit that focuses on rigorous analysis of the value of natural systems. In her career she was VP of Human Resources for Sonus Pharmaceuticals and Senior VP of Human Resources at the $10+ billion Stop & Shop Supermarket Company. She also led the first human resources department at Microsoft. Ingrid is a board member of the Sustainable Path Foundation, a member of the Washington State Wildlife Diversity Advisory Council, and a director of the Pacific Northwest chapter of E2 - Environmental Entrepreneurs.
Ingrid says, "I am passionate about restoring the Salish Sea in my lifetime --- and I'm old, so we need to hurry!"
Note: Ingrid isn't actually that old! :)
