Meet the Intern: Jena Blanchard

Written by: Jena Blanchard, EDA Summer Intern

Hi! My name is Jena. I am the intern for the EDA this summer. I was born and raised in Snohomish, Washington. I graduated from high school in 2009 from Cedar Park Christian School in Bothell, Washington. Since high school I have been on pursuit of what I would like to do for a career. I grew up with a single mother as an only child, and we would constantly take trips together.

RevitalizeWA Rewind

Downtown Ellensburg was this year’s host location for the RevitalizeWA conference (more on the conference HERE). If you noticed about 280 people with green lanyards walking around downtown earlier this week, that was RevitalizeWA.

I love this photo of me and my husband, Lee. It was taken last year at a workshop at Gallery One. I appreciate art, and I’m certainly not an artistic person, but this class came with no experience necessary (perfect!) and Lee and I had a blast. The opportunities in downtown to share, create and experience life in an environment that embraces and enlightens are just some of what I appreciate about downtown Ellensburg.

Hello! My name is Molly. I was born and raised in Kodiak Alaska. Anyone who can point that out on a map gets a gold star! I graduated from Kodiak High School in 2010 and spent my first year of college at University of Alaska Anchorage. I quickly decided life consistently below 0 wasn’t for me, so in 2011 I traded moose and bears for horses and cows.
