Presenters

Glenn Coil was born and grew up in Boston, where he received his BS in sociology from Northeastern University. While at Northeastern, Glenn interned in the Boston City Council and in the Irish Dail (Parliament). After graduation in 2001, Glenn moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington, where in 2004 he received his Masters degree in urban planning with a focus in environmental planning.

Fuzzy Fletcher began volunteering for the Snoqualmie Police Department in 1991 while working full time as a toolmaker. In 1996 he was elected to the city council for the city of Snoqualmie, and in 1998 he was elected as mayor. During his time as mayor he became interested in emergency management, as the city of Snoqualmie is flood-prone. He began working toward building an emergency management department in the city.

Lynda Harvey works for the Tulalip Police Department, writes grants for the program, and oversees several large projects for the Tulalip Tribes, including NWTEMC and Homeland Security. Lynda is currently the chairperson for the Region I Homeland Security Tribal Committee and continues to work closely with federal, state and local agencies for the further promotion of emergency management in tribal nations. In 1998 Lynda began working at the Tulalip Health Clinic as the administrator of the health services program and oversaw clinic operations for the following five years.

Lee Shipman is a Shoalwater Bay Elder who was born on the reservation sixty-two years ago. She lived in the house where she was born for nine years, then moved to Indiana for forty-five years. She moved back to the reservation permanently eight years ago and is her tribe’s emergency management director. She has been working in emergency management for her tribe for three years.
