We are fortunate to be able to give back to the community through donations and by participating in activities for the schools, arts, sports, and charitable organizations. We take pride in making “Bainbridge Island Fudge” and enjoy the positive feedback we receive from customers.

have been a lifelong resident of the Pacific NW and relocated with my family to Bainbridge from West Seattle in 1999. We chose Bainbridge because of the small town character and the casual lifestyle. It has been a perfect fit and we love it here. I chose a career in Real Estate after working as a Registered Nurse for over 26 years. I find many similarities between both career fields and today I offer my clients: Integrity, Compassion, Advocacy, Organization, Dedication and Humor. I continue to be involved in health care by volunteering with Flying Doctors of America, a medical mission organization providing health care to underserved communities around the world. If you are considering downsizing, selling, buying or investing in real estate, I can help.

Wes’ Kitchens & Baths, Kitchen Designer

came to Bainbridge Island in 1984 as a young mother after having worked for Pan American World Airways. Being a military brat and moving so frequently as a youth, it was such a comfort to me to be able to raise my two boys here, allowing them to go through the Bainbridge Island school system K-12. We started Wes’ Kitchens & Baths in 1986 and had our store in Rolling Bay for 20 years before deciding to move our business to an in-home business now for 6 years. I enjoyed working with island families to plan, design and implement their ideas into reality. It is so rewarding to create this new kitchen and be a part of how they live, and give these families a lovely modern kitchen that is also within their budget. I juggle the kitchen design and the bathroom estimates with working up contracts for Wes’ business Neill-Smith Construction Company and also doing his billing. From the general contracting part of the job, to the specifics of kitchens & bathrooms, it has been rewarding to me and my family to be a part of this community.

PrettyStick Organic Beauty

ari has been a Health Facilitator for over ten years and uses that background daily with her customers at PrettyStick Beauty. She has lived on the island with her family for over five years. The idea for PrettyStick was born from Lari’s observation that although transitioning to safe beauty products may be one of the easiest changes a person can make for better health.....it’s pretty hard to figure out which products are truly safe. “Its not fair that it takes multiple college degrees to navigate the back of a cosmetics bottle”. Lari opened PrettyStick to remove all of the guesswork for the customer. Every product in the store is healthy, period. Oh, and why is she wearing that Wonder Woman headband? Lari also has a hand in Soup’r Burger, the awesome superhero themed burger joint, opening at the end of the month.

alking about insurance is not something fun that I look forward to. It can be confusing, confounding and extremely difficult to research on your own—not to mention just plain boring. Linna has a way of making such a mundane subject easy to understand, and even pleasant to talk about. Her warmth, compassion and patience are always evident, along with an ever-present sense of humor. Her depth of knowledge and experience in her field makes me feel confident that I am going to a reliable, honest and unbiased source who will work to find the best solutions for me as an individual, or for my family.” – Alex Sanso, Artopia Creative

Bainbridge schools seek island help with Clickathon BY RICHARD D. OXLEY Bainbridge Island Review

Education can present quite a few challenges, especially when it comes to funding it. Luckily, these days making sure students on Bainbridge Island have great schools is only a click away. The Clickathon is a Bainbridge Island way to support its schools. “In the old days they had ‘phoneathon.’ Originally teachers and community members and administrators would come together to call the community members and ask for donations,” said Kari Wright of the Bainbridge Schools Foundation. “We morphed it into the ‘Clickathon,’” she added.

“Instead of being bothered on the phone during your dinner hour, we are asking people to go online and make a donation annually.” The Clickathon runs through Oct. 31, leaving just under a week for the island to donate toward the education of its future. Donating is simple. From the comfort of a computer, laptop or smart phone, islanders can go to the foundation’s website, www.bain bridgeschoolsfoundation. com, and make a donation using their bank card or PayPal. The Clickathon is one third of the fundraising effort for the foundation, but perhaps the most widereaching — they also have a benefit dinner and benefit

breakfast to raise money. This year the foundation has a goal of donating $1 million. “Last year we gave the school district a million dollars and we hope to do the same this year,” Wright said. The foundation is seeking donations of any amount to help fund the island’s classrooms. “A donation of any size is important; $10 or $10,000,” said Connie Feikes with

the Bainbridge Schools Foundation. “We are asking people to make a donation of what works for their family.” The money is important to the school district’s teachers and administrators. “They are counting on the money,” Wright said. “It pays for staff salaries, keeps class sizes reasonable, teacher training, and classroom enrichment grants.” Teachers in particular see the effects of the founda-

tion’s funding. “Every year it funds anywhere in the neighborhood of six to eight teachers that wouldn’t have jobs,” Feikes said. “Students get 90 more minutes of visual math per week because of this funding.” Wright noted that math and science are increasingly becoming an important fac-

tor in education and the money raised helps fund STEM programs in the district. And if the benefits to children’s education isn’t attractive enough. Feikes noted another good reason. “Schools impact property values,” she said. “That affects community at large.”

Jen Wiebusch CTACC Heart Strong Life Coaching

A life coach is someone who gets you to do what you don’t want to do, so you can be who you want to be. I team with individuals or groups who want a fresh approach to challenges facing them. My expertise has developed over 30+ years in the health and fitness industry. I’ve discovered the most significiant challenge facing folks is making time for their wellness, health, and fitness as they care for others and manage responsibilities at home and professionally. Working with a life coach provides you with an accountability partner that will help you explore potential solutions and new perspectives in a secure framework of meaningful dialogue.
