WSCC Board of Directors
Eileen J. King, MPA, EdD- Board Chair
I am the proud mom of two children and Nana to five grandchildren and have worked in the behavioral health advocacy field for over 30 years. I worked as a peer support through A Common Voice in Pierce County and as a Wraparound Coordinator at the Puyallup Tribe of Indians assisting families with their journeys through multi-systems while advocating for system transformation. These days my professional work is focused on supporting nonprofits to grow and thrive, training and teaching, and working on policy reform to improve children’s mental health services. Any spare time is spent with my family, usually playing with the grandchildren, puttering in the greenhouse, writing, or creating art.
Janice Schutz – Board Treasurer
I am the proud parent of a 2 daughters. One of my daughter’s struggles have been manifest in mental, emotional and behavioral challenges for our entire family. I have been actively advocating for her as we have navigated through multiple Systems of Care (educational, peer support, medical, etc, at the federal, state and regional levels) for over a decade. Through problem solving, with the help of family and friends, and guidance from caring professionals, we have met these challenges and successfully overcome numerous obstacles. Throughout this time, I have worked steadfastly to educate myself and build a network of contacts in order to help other families like ours. I have also been a small business owner for more than 20 years. I have acquired many skills from supervision, management and training experience, public speaking and negotiating contracts, research and recruiting to marketing and training, I also have a very strong desire to support and empower other families to understand and utilize the systems of care from a grassroots community based perspective. In my free time I practice yoga, read books and play with my horse, Rocky.
