Treasurer - Jen Erickson
Jen Erickson has worked for the Maintenance Department at Link Transit in Wenatchee since March 1997. Prior to that she was a Professional Ski/Snowboard Instructor at Stevens Pass & Mission Ridge, but seasonal work isn’t a career – unfortunately!

She and her husband enjoy snowboarding, fly-fishing and supporting the lively independent music scene in the Northwest by hosting musicians in their home.
