Louise has been with Washington Bikes since 1994 and is often referred to as its institutional memory. Her community outreach efforts for the WA Bikes have spawned the formation of several local friends groups, including Friends of Burke Gilman Trail in Seattle and the Fish Lake Trail Action Group in Spokane. She has a passion for the outdoors and is happiest when exploring it by bike, skis or hiking boots. She also likes to knit and has been known to stash small knitting projects in her cycling panniers and backpacks.
