A graduate of the University of Washington, Rowena volunteered at SYM way back when it was an overnight shelter. Since college she has held the conviction that the poor are important to God and need to be remembered, seen and cared for. She is passionate about the SYM team and seeks to encourage their gifts and ensure they have the tools and support needed to serve youth well. But, don’t think she can do this alone… Rowena is never without a cup of coffee, a savory snack (she calls these her “supports”) and the white noise of sports radio in her headphones. Her favorite things are her husband, Geoff and their three energetic (and noisy!) boys.
