The Washington/Idaho Alumni Association was created for the purpose of keeping majority Rainbow Girls connected with our jurisdiction.
“Rainbow also showed me how impactful a supportive, collaborative, mentoring environment can be to young people. My time in Rainbow continues to impact how I conduct myself as a leader and how I build my teams.”
Senior Director of Clinical Operations
WA-ID Alumnae, Class of 1993
I joined Silverdale Assembly #155 in 1987 and future GWA Holly Campbell was my sponsor. With a theme of Believe in the Magic of your Dreams and a lodge filled with purple, silver and unicorns (still my favorites!), I became Worthy Advisor in 1990. I participated in many ritual competitions (and won a few), received the Grand Cross of Color, and presented the Canadian Flag Tribute at Grand Assembly. I served as Grand Co-Chairman Ritual (aka Ritual Nerd) with the Sensational Seals in 1992-93. After taking majority, I was also a Silverdale Advisory Board member for several years.
I am currently the Senior Director of Clinical Operations at Triumvira Immunologics where I design, plan and execute oncology clinical trials. Rainbow gave me organization and speaking skills I use nearly every single day.
(I STILL think of Rainbow every time I draft a meeting agenda!) More importantly, it gave me confidence. The very shy 13 year old who joined Rainbow would hardly recognize the adult who presents to cancer patients, doctors, CEOs and even the FDA. One you’ve stared down a ritual competition judge, the rest is easy!
Rainbow also showed me how impactful a supportive, collaborative, mentoring environment can be to young people. My time in Rainbow continues to impact how I conduct myself as a leader and how I build my teams. Many of my past and current successes can be traced to Rainbow – seeds planted long ago in the little log cabin that was Silverdale’s unique assembly room.
