CARNATION – After an extensive search, Carnation Farms’ Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Jeff Gottlieb as chief executive officer.
Gottlieb, a Sammamish resident, is the first CEO of the newly founded nonprofit, and will lead the way in the delivery of the mission and vision to connect individuals to the food system, local ecology and sustainable agriculture.
Kathy Brasch is trained as a member of the Carnation-Duvall Community Emergency Response Team and she also has completed the Traffic and Crowd Management training module.
Kathy has had the opportunity twice to help direct traffic at incidents she drove up on, once just the other night. She approached the first responders, told them her background and asked if she could assist with traffic management. In both cases they did not have anyone to take on that role and welcomed her help.
Kathy got out her CERT vest, bump helmet and flashlight, positioned herself where they had requested and helped out for several hours.
