A Big Welcome to Grace Kong, Our New Administrative Manager


With great pride, we welcome our newest awesome member of the LLC team: Grace Kong, our new Administrative Manager. Grace has just moved down from Seattle for sunnier weather and exciting new opportunities.

Grace is no stranger to the leadership development field. She participated in the Community Leaders Program at the Asian Community Leadership Foundation. She provided leadership development training to at-risk youth at King County. Most recently she worked as a facilitator and trainer at the Safe Schools Coalition in Seattle, Washington.
Grace served as a Program Manager with King County Community Services Division, where she worked for over 9 years. She managed administrative and operational aspects of workforce development and alternative education.

Grace received her undergraduate degree at the University of Washington in Ethnic Studies and Speech Communication, and her master's of public administration at Seattle University.

On joining LLC, Grace says, "I am extremely excited to be a new member of the LLC team. Collegiality and collaboration in nonprofit leadership is essential, and I look forward to contributing to this work as the new Administrative Manager."

We feel lucky to have nabbed such a talented, experienced and motivated individual for our team of collaborative leaders. She will be working 3/4 time while she attends a certificate program for Computer Science at Mills College. Yay for women in tech!

Grace will have many responsibilities here, including contracts, accounts receivable, and budgets. She will also be the point person for scheduling Deborah's calendar going forward. Her email is
