Edna grew up learning cultural ways in organized people systems and has worked in all levels of government. She brings this experience to the GSA team as it works to support the Salish Sea and its adjoining waters and communities. She respects the collaboration techniques that the organization has been using to support the health and safety of the Salish Sea. Edna plans to utilize her knowledge and skills to continue to work for what she is passionate about: the lands and waters, from which her ancestors and elders have taught her to live off of as they have been doing since time immemorial. In her role as Operations Coordinator, Edna couples these knowledge transfers with her business administration, and accounting and payroll background to reach the goals and objectives that GSA has set and continues to set with the ever-changing times.
