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.
Born and raised in Seattle, Molly has no desire to live anywhere but the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Shortly after their marriage in 1997, she and her husband Crispin decided they wanted to get away from city living (and traffic!), and turned their eyes toward South Whidbey Island. After eventually finding the perfect property and building the home of their dreams, their family of 5 and Crispin’s upholstery business moved to the Island in 2004.
In addition to her AAAS degree in Office Administration/Business Technology, Molly has over 30 years of office management and accounting experience. She started working with the Port of South Whidbey in 2007 and became a full time employee of the Port in 2010. Molly looks forward to meeting the challenges presented as the Port continues to grow and take on new projects and providing continued support for those efforts. She enjoys working with the public and being an active member of the wonderful South Whidbey community.

Born and raised in Seattle, Pat and his wife Renee have strong roots that go back generations in the Pacific Northwest. After having two children, Andy and Kim, they desired to seek a calmer way of life. They moved to Fir Island in 1990, just in time for the big 100-year flood. Loving life on Fir Island, Pat took seasonal employment with the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife where he maintained boat launches. Eventually he landed a permanent position with the Washington State Department of Transportation Maintenance Facility in Coupeville. During this time, Pat also served as a volunteer firefighter and EMT at Central Whidbey Island Fire and Rescue, becoming Duty Office/Station Captain at the Race Road facility. He served in this capacity for 18 years. After 22 years with the DOT, he desired a change. This led him to the Port of South Whidbey, where he was hired in the Fall of 2015. Focusing on South Whidbey and the people that make up this great community has been very rewarding.
