New Sustainable Ballard Board Officers Elected!

We are pleased to announce that Olivia Price and Judy Tangen have joined our Board of Directors as Treasurer and Secretary respectively.

Olivia Price

Olivia Price Board Treasurer (email Olivia)

Olivia was born and raised in Sunset Hill and grew up playing at Webster Park and learning more about her Scandinavian roots at the Nordic Heritage Museum. After stints in the University District and Capitol Hill she is excited to call Ballard home again, and lives in West Woodland with her partner, grandparents, and rescue pup Stellaluna. Olivia is a strong supporter of local food systems, and still remembers attending opening day of the Ballard Sunday Market with her family in 2000. She was introduced to Sustainable Ballard’s work through the market gleaning program and is excited to support more of the organization’s initiatives as a board member. Olivia is currently pursuing her Master’s in Public Administration at the University of Washington.

Judy Tangen

Judy Tangen Board Secretary (email Judy)

Judy moved to Seattle in 1967 to finish her degree at the University of Washington. She grew up on the Washington Coast just north of Hoquiam. She still remembers being so impressed with Seattle and a little intimidated. Coming from a logging community to a progressive city like Seattle was exciting. Judy still loves Seattle. She is glad to live in a growing city that attracts people globally. And she thinks Ballard is becoming more vibrant as Seattle grows. Judy has volunteered with the Associated Recreation Council (ARC) for the last 30 years as an advisory council member at the Loyal Heights Community Center. Volunteering with Seattle Parks through ARC has been rewarding in every way. It has helped connect her to neighbors all over Seattle. She hopes to bring that experience to Sustainable Ballard. Judy retired from a 47 year career at locally owned Alaskan Copper. She now has the opportunity to build a career as an advocate for diversity and social equity. She wants her granddaughters to grow up in a neighborhood that accepts all people.
