Fautimah oversees the daily functioning of our Seattle office operations and ensures that our guests and employees have a welcoming experience.

Fautimah earned her BA in sociology with a minor in diversity studies from the University of Washington, where she graduated in 2019. In addition to her studies, Fautimah’s experiences as a biracial woman have led her on a path to equity and social justice work.
