Newcastle City Councilwoman Lisa Jensen will continue in her role as a member of Harborview Medical Center’s Board of Trustees.
King County Councilman Reagan Dunn announced she was reappointed to the board. The King County Council confirmed the appointment at its Jan. 27 meeting.
“I am so pleased that Lisa agreed to serve another term on the board,” he said in a statement. “She brings a wealth of knowledge to the board as a former deputy mayor of Newcastle, current councilmember, and small business person. Lisa has the depth of public service experience to help the board serve the community at a high level.”
Jensen has served on the board since 2008. The 13-person board, as the representative authority of the county, oversees the provision of health-care services in order to assure that high quality health care is made available to county residents. Harborview board terms are for four years.
“In my first term as a trustee on the Harborview board I’ve been impressed with the quality healthcare that is delivered at our county hospital, and the commitment of the Board of Trustees, King County and the management team to Harborview’s mission,” Jensen said in a statement. “It is an honor to be reappointed for a second term.”
Jensen has lived in Newcastle since 2000. She was elected to the Newcastle City Council in 2007 and 2011 and became deputy mayor for a two-year term in 2012.
She is also a Newcastle Chamber of Commerce member, and a past Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer. She serves on the Lake Washington Cedar River Watershed Forum (WRIA 8) and the Sound Cities Association Public Issues Committee.
Prior to starting her own business, Jensen spent 13 years working in the software industry and five years as an industrial engineer in the aerospace industry. Her experience includes human resources management, financial systems consulting, technical training, sales & marketing management.
