Stan was born and raised in Portland, OR. His Great-grandparents, both sets on his mother’s side of the family, settled in Anacortes in the late 1890s/early 1900s resulting in extended family spread all across the Puget Sound. He spent much of his summers and holidays visiting relatives in Olympia, Vashon Island, Hood Canal, and the greater Seattle area (and was raised a die-hard Husky fan). After graduating from the University of Washington in 1992, Stan with his wife Janette (also a Puget Sound native) left the Pacific Northwest for service in the US Army. After an absence of nearly 26 years serving in the Army, Arizona Army National Guard and private sector employment, they found their way back to Washington and chose to make their home on Whidbey Island.
Stan has experience managing organizations and groups as small as 10 people and as large as 900; and annual budgets from $1 million to $20 million. He enjoys bringing groups together to accomplish organizational goals and objectives; and, is excited and thrilled to be a part of the Port supporting the residents of South Whidbey Island.
