Women in Leadership Profile: Tiffany Brown Women in Leadership Profile: Tiffany Brown What if you found the perfect role for yourself, working in a field you were passionate about, grateful to serve your community as a behind the scenes leader who many people might not even know about?  What if you preferred the spotlight to be on others, and were happy to lay the foundation in planning, coordination and partnerships that resulted in effective response and recovery from disasters?  What if that suited your personality perfectly? And what if your role kept getting bigger and your contributions more needed [...]

Women in Leadership Profile: Tieka Adeogun

2021-08-03T21:15:54+00:00

Women in Leadership Profile: Tieka Adeogun Tieka has an impressive stack of certificates from FEMA courses. She can tell you about Incident Command. She knows how to build and evaluate exercises. Her experience in the field, and the degrees she’s earned, mean she’s ready to respond to a wide range of disasters. Even so, it wasn’t until the incident involving a mouse and a kayak that she discovered how completely she’d adopted the lens of an emergency manager. None of those FEMA courses said anything about the kind of small domestic emergency that might occur if a kayak is [...]

Women in Leadership Profile: Tanya Knight

2021-07-08T19:14:08+00:00

Women in Leadership Profile: Tanya Knight By Deb Moller Most people, counting down the five or ten years until retirement age, would never consider tackling a doctoral program. Tanya Knight isn’t like most people. As Tanya says, “As long as I’m healthy, why not keep going? After all, I might live forty more years!” She doesn’t expect her learning, her growth, or her contributions to be limited just because her driver’s license shows a certain age. Tanya joked that she’s never paid much attention to her age. A story her family still laughs at happened decades ago, when one [...]

Women in Leadership Profile: Mary Kay Bredeson

2021-07-08T19:27:47+00:00

Women in Leadership Profile: Mary Kay Bredeson By Deb Moller When someone retires, a common comment is that they are starting a new chapter in their lives. Most of the time, people are secretly certain that the coming chapter will be less interesting, less challenging, and less important than the work-life the person is leaving.  But people who know Mary Kaye Bredeson are secretly certain that her track record of reinventing her life in wondrous ways will continue, and whatever comes next is sure to be as remarkable as what has come before. As the eldest of seven children [...]

Women in Leadership Profile: Michele L. Turner MBCP, FBCI, CISA, CRISC By Deb Moller “If you would go fast, go alone. But if you would go far, bring others along.” - African Proverb As a woman of color, Michele is aware that there are biases in the world that can impact how others see the value that she has to offer. She insists that it’s the invisible differences, things we may not see or know about other people that are a critical source of diversity that should not be overlooked. For example, an invisible diversity characteristic in her life is [...]

Women in Leadership Profile: Toya Moore

2021-05-04T23:11:34+00:00

By Deb Moller When Toya Moore was a child, her family doctor provided care in a hospital setting.  When she’d go for a check-up, she saw a sea of white people in white coats.  One day, she saw something different – a black woman in a white coat.  The woman was kind and professional, excellent at her job.  Toya learned she was a medical assistant. The impression she made was so strong that Toya decided to become a medical assistant one day.  Another black woman in a white coat.  Another beacon of possibility to a black child in [...]

A sailor living aboard a boat for seven years. A woman who taught Bill Gates to use a technology program. A bee-keeper.  An engineering student who did poorly in her college classes yet became one of the first to switch from manual to electronic drafting.   A white-hat hacker.  A student at the bottom of her class at Pennisula College due to numerical dyslexia. A United Nations [...]

Preparedness Workshop

2021-04-07T21:41:36+00:00

In January, we marked the 321st anniversary of the last full-rip 9.0 Cascadia earthquake. In March, we note the 20th anniversary of the Nisqually earthquake. Even though we live in earthquake country, we aren’t ready for a significant event. Will we ever be? Is getting people to prepare an impossible pipe dream or a worthy goal? Why is it so difficult? Are Emergency Managers the right people to carry the preparedness message? If not, why not? If not, who is? This class will use research from applied behavioral science, the principles of adult education, and findings from marketing efforts to [...]
