Kathi Jones – President

I have lived in Regatta for eight years and was the Board treasurer from 2007-2009, and remained on the board until 2010. I sit on The Lakes Board, The Lakes Neighborhood Council and coordinate Regatta’s National Night Out.  I acquired the City of Kent grant to replace our playground and organized our community build.  I write The Lakes newspaper “Ripples at The Lakes” and did the artwork for our free “Little Library”.  I participated in focus groups addressing Midway Development and sat on the evaluation committee for The City of Kent’s demonstration Cottage Housing Project. I have a Bachelors Degree in Education and hold a current Washington State Real Estate License.  I have Certificates in Commercial Real Estate Property Management and Investment and training in Sustainable Development, Green Real Estate and Apartment Management from North Seattle Community College where I maintained a 3.86 grade point average and made the Dean’s List. As a Realtor® with John L. Scott for 12 years, I work primarily in South King County area and consider volunteerism as part of my passion to help build better communities.
