Kokanee Ellingson (she/her/hers)
Hi, my name is Kokanee Ellingson! I grew up in Portland, Oregon, and I love the PNW. I have my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and am currently pursuing my Master's in Business Leadership. I have previous experience working in case management, and have worked in higher education admissions and enrollment services. I truly believe the absolute best part of this field is the students. I find so much joy in meeting with and caring for students and I’m excited to continue doing so in this role. I live in North Spokane with my partner, Bailey, and our two cats, Mikko and Atticus. I love to read, spend time outdoors, and travel to new places - you can often find me doing one of these three things when I am not working. I am so excited to get to know you!
Ashley Bartels (she/her/hers)
Hi, I’m Ashley Bartels! I grew up in Roseville, CA, and I was brought to Spokane to play softball and study psychology at Whitworth University. Since I’ve moved here, I’ve been a huge fan of the PNW (especially the snow). I absolutely love getting to meet new people and creating safe space for holistic conversations, and I am pumped to be able to do this as a case manager. Outside of work, I am most likely enjoying some sort of chaos with my partner Ellie, my best friends, and/ or my dog named Socks. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you!!
