Salish Seas Expeditions provides middle and high schools students the opportunity to apply science and math in the Puget Sound. Most school programs cannot allow for a multi-day expedition, but Elletra can provide a single-day excursion that can reach more students in the Puget Sound.

“I’ll be honest, with a computer science degree and years of experience in the start-up world, I never thought I’d have to give up my career after having a family.”
-Eva Monsen, Board President and Data Engineering Consultant
How many parents can identify with that statement, especially moms?
It just isn’t getting easier to raise children in today’s world. Childcare is often prohibitively expensive and there are few, if any, flexible drop in or part-time options. Finding safe and affordable childcare can be a significant stress on working parents.
That’s why a group of entrepreneurs, freelancers and stay-at-home parents came together over a year ago, and decided we can make the system work better.
Our founding group of more than fourteen dedicated moms (and dads) came up with a simple plan. We formed the Women’s Business Incubator as an organization to help women entrepreneurs with their businesses and families. WBI was formed as a non-profit 501(c)3 in order to help women at every level and provide more services they need all in one place.
Our focus is on these five areas we identified as problematic for women and include:
Professional office space and business services
Quality drop-in childcare services.
Leadership training circles and mentorship
Micro-loans and access to financing
Classes and workshops
Summers in Seattle can be quite spectacular, but some days shine brighter. The day that Josh and Nicole got married at the Olympic Sculpture Park stands out. The highlight moment of this day is when the bride walks down the aisle. Her smile radiates and you can feel the joy. Overall, it was probably one of the most gorgeous days in 2016. Maybe it was the views, or maybe it was the fabulous celebration of this couple.

Amidst all the hustle of the wedding day, it is important to take the time to breathe and soak up all the love. May & Ye-San got married in Seattle – and although I didn’t get the opportunity to shoot the wedding (I was 8.5 months pregnant), I felt like I got to know their love through their footage.
Their friends and family literally gathered together and circled them in their love. You can tell that they are blessed with so much love and support.
What a beautiful day. Congratulations!
