Seeking blue skies, clean air and natural beauty, Cheryl and her family relocated to Seattle after a decade of hopscotching through Jakarta, Seoul and Taipei. First as Philanthropy Northwest’s bookkeeper back when we were a small team of six. Now as our finance and systems director, she manages our financial underpinnings and keeps pace with our exciting growth — in staffing and as an incubator for Cascadia Foodshed Financing Project, Community Democracy Workshop and other projects.
Cheryl is a proud alumna of University of California-Berkeley's Haas School of Business, with a bachelor's degree in finance. In her spare time, she enjoys crafting, exploring new breakfast spots with her husband Bill and heading down to her native California for a quick dose of sunshine.
