We’re excited to welcome Julie Gonzales-Corbin as our newest board member! A longtime WTC volunteer, Julie is a woman of many talents. In order to introduce her properly, we asked her a few questions:
What draws you to environmental health?
Environment and health are two words that just belong together. I'm happiest and healthiest when I'm taking full advantage of living in our beautiful Northwest environment. But, what's the point, if my family and friends are made sick by unnecessary exposure to harmful chemicals?
What’s your favorite thing about WTC’s work?
That's a hard one! It's a tie between their front-end leadership in policy-making and information they freely offer to the public. A very close second is, of course, the effective staff.
What unique skills do you bring to WTC’s board?
I hope to bring the small-business owner's perspective to the board. Successful small business relies on gratitude toward built relationships with customers. My contribution to the board will be to joyfully meet their needs.
What's your favorite thing you've done to reduce toxics in your home?
I'm a DIY gal! I clean and garden with vinegar, which is great for moss and weed reduction. The smell is so much better.
Who is your personal hero?
When I was little, I identified with Mighty Mouse. And today-- I'd say anyone, big or little, who takes action according to their core values and passions. WTC is bold and mighty in my book!
