Louise is a regionally known and experienced executive who has proven expertise in providing management, both financial and operational, to companies experiencing rapid growth and those going through business restructuring and bankruptcy protection. Although a native of Los Angeles, the Pacific Northwest is special to her and she can usually be found dragon boat racing a few days a week. While a student at the University of Puget Sound, Louise went on a UPS Pacific Rim trip that made her fall in love with the wonderful countries she visited. This trip took her to South Korea, China, Japan, Burma, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, and Nepal. Prior to her installation as President and CEO, Louise had been an active WTC Tacoma Board Member for over two years, where she has spent time on the Executive Committee and as its Treasurer.
