Administrative Assistant

Kristina - Administrative Assistant

KristinaWelcome to the best Senior Center in town! My name is Kristina Webberley. I first got introduced to the Ballard NW Senior Center through my volunteer work, and when I found out that there was an opening for an Administrative Assistant I applied immediately. That was more than four years ago and I still love working here. 

I have worked simultaneously as an Administrative Assistant and Accountant for three companies since I graduated from Western Washington University with a BA in Accounting back in 2008. My co-workers, the volunteers, and the wonderful people, who attend the Center, make every work day fantastic. I grew up in Ballard and I am proud that my career is helping to make it a better place to live. Recently I adopted a cat named Tigger.

Program Coordinator

Lauren - Program Coordinator

Bob, Nutrition Manager

As the new Program Coordinator for Ballard Northwest Senior Center, I'm elated to say that I've never had a job where I get paid for laughing every day! 

After fourteen years of working as a road warrior for a textbook publishing company traveling throughout Washington and Oregon, I look forward to my five minute commute to work and being home each night for dinner .

Here’s a little bit about who I am.

Growing up in Maine I was very close to my Grandmother. She taught me how to bake, how to sew, how to find natural herbs in the woods and, in general, about life. She also taught me about some of the hard realities of life, like competition. We played Scrabble all the time – and I never once beat her. Her sense of humor, her wit and her inner strength helped to mold who I am today.
I’m so looking forward to immersing myself into my new position and becoming part of the Ballard Northwest Senior Center’s Family!

Hi, I’m Scott. Mondays & Thursdays I’m at the Center offering free counseling, personal coaching & problem-solving services. The Center, for me, is like a family, and I really enjoy it. Among my varied interests are people, travel & cross-cultural experiences such as my work on Indian reservation in the northwest & southwest U.S. & with the Peace Corps in Brazil.
