Kay grew up and still resides in the beautiful city of Lake Stevens, Washington. She is the fourth generation to live there, only leaving for a short time during college to California on an exchange program. Kay attended Seattle Pacific University graduating with a bachelors in Business Administration in 1980.
Kay started at the county as accounting extra help in 1987 and accepted a full-time position with the Parks Department in January, 1989 as an accounting technician. She has worked her way through the accounting section to her current position as capital funds fiscal analyst. She works the majority of her time on budget and contract administration for the Parks Construction Fund. She works closely with the contracts, planning, and program/marketing sections as well as manages the accounting section. She loves the close-knit and energetic parks and fairgrounds family. They all like to have fun in their jobs. How can they help it, though, when they have a beautiful office in a park setting and manage some of the most beautiful parks in Snohomish County. She loves to travel and see the parks and sites that the world has to offer, but it makes her realize how beautiful Washington is. Snohomish County parks is currently working on building some spectacular new parks. Come visit and enjoy.
