Voice of Vashon Names new Executive Director


The Voice of Vashon is pleased to announce the appointment of Kate Dowling to the position of Executive Director, replacing Lisa Breen who is stepping down to spend more time with her family. “We are excited to bring Kate on board at the Voice of Vashon,” said Board President Rik Reed. “We had an exceptionally strong field of candidates interested in working with us at VoV, but Kate’s background and love of community made her a perfect fit.”

Kate brings years of experience in the private sector in management, content creation and facilitating various teams. She also has a close connection with the not-for-profit community on the island having served as a board member and treasurer of the DOVE Project. In addition, Kate co-hosts the Mostly True Radio Show on VoV where she displays her quick wit and ability to improvise. “From the moment I set foot on this island I knew I wanted to be an integral part of the community,” said Kate. “I don’t think there is a better place to connect all islanders than through VoV and its incredibly valuable emergency alert service, radio and TV presence. I am excited to get to work.”

“The only sad part of this transition is losing the energy and hard work of Lisa Breen,” said Reed.  “Lisa has done a tremendous job taking over a new organizational structure for VoV and implementing that in an incredibly smooth fashion. We will miss Lisa’s ideas and implementation skills.”
