2017-18 Board of Directors
Marianne McIntosh, President
Marianne grew up in Thurston County and resides in Olympia. She joined the Junior League of Olympia in 2005 as a way to meet new friends and give back to the community. She loves the support Junior League provides our community and the relationships she has cultivated through the years. During her first year with the league, she was double placed as the treasurer and a member of the (retired) Deck the Halls committee. The next 10 years were filled with various placements plus time off during her pregnancies. After her second pregnancy, she missed being active in the League and volunteered to be the 2014 and 2015 Gala Chair.
Marianne graduated from Western Washington University with a degree in finance. She continued her education at City University and obtained her accounting certificate. She has worked as an auditor for a public accounting firm and currently works for the Department of Revenue as a tax research and fiscal analyst.
Marianne is not analyzing data, she enjoys spending time with her husband
and two little girls. Occasionally, she is able to have a few minutes to herself
to pursue her new love of quilting. She is also an avid runner. If you see her
running around, give her a wave!

The Junior League of Olympia is fortunate to have a council of Community Advisors. This group is made up of individuals who represent different segments of our community. Their knowledge and expertise provide JLO with guidance in areas such as advocacy, community programs, public relations, communication, membership, fund-raising and administrative management.
Our community advisors serve on a staggered term basis and are appointed to serve for one or two year terms. The council provides JLO a vehicle to receive feedback and assistance, as well as communicate the League's purpose and programs to various sectors of the community.
