Seasons change, people change and so do their jobs! We were fortunate to have Shell Philhower work with Recreation Northwest as our Office Manager since October 2018. Shell was a timely addition to our team as our organization was going through other staff and event transitions. On behalf of our staff and Board of Directors, I would like to publicly acknowledge the contribution that Shell made to our organization and the share the appreciation that we have for her professionalism and personality.
Shell Philhower has passion for the great outdoors running an organized office. Shell has been a bookkeeper and office administrator for over a decade, with experience ranging from teaching Kindergarten to managing the produce department of a local health-food store. Shell cycles to work downtown daily, splitting her time between Kulshan Community Land Trust and Recreation Northwest. If Shell isn’t balancing books or maintaining databases, she’s hopefully out swimming in Lake Whatcom or hiking up to Pine and Cedar Lakes.
Thank you Shell!
