Ethan Zecca
President

Keryn Giguere
Treasurer


Keryn Giguere graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a degree in Psychology and Gender Studies. “I find people super interesting, and have always been motivated to understanding and helping them.” When Keryn isn’t helping people buy and sell houses in Tacoma, she is usually playing with her two kitties, Langston and Lady Katherine, cooking delicious plant-based meals, or practicing self-care at the local YMCA.

“I have been coming to Rainbow Center Gayla for the past handful of years and it’s one of my favorite events in Tacoma. I love seeing the community come together to support such a wonder resource! The energy in the room is contagious- it’s always a happy celebration.”

This is the first time Keryn has been on a board, and she is thrilled to be learning and serving on the Rainbow Center Board.
