Justine was born in Anchorage Alaska but moved to rural Washington when she was 8, first living in Rochester before moving to Lewis County after high school to attend Centralia College.
Justine is a tenured customer service and office management representative. She holds multiple educational degrees and is working towards her next. In her spare time she enjoys supporting friends, volunteering for local neurodiverse organizations, reading, and taking care of her fabulous collection of houseplants and her wonderful cat.
Justine has formerly served as treasurer and then president of a local GSA club and always wanted to do more. She grew up in a very religious family and seeing first hand just how impactful it can be in people's lives, the "place making" part of the LCDG mission is a really important aspect in her personal desire to be part of the board helping build a more welcoming Lewis County for everyone.
