Division Marketing Director, Cascade Designs, Inc.
Mona West is a new addition to Washington's National Park Fund's Board of Directors, but has been a long-time supporter and visitor of our national parks. She is actively involved with The Mountaineers, and is an avid climber and hiker. Because of this love for our outdoor spaces, Mona knew being a part of WNPF was a perfect fit for her passions and skills to give back to our parks.
Mona first climbed Mount Rainier in 1998, along with her brother. She remembers a beautiful summit, on a bright sunny day over the 4th of July weekend. That trip inspired her to learn more about mountaineering so she could continue to explore the mountains of our national parks without hiring a guide service. Becoming a life-long passion, Mona now has many memories in our mountains, and knows there are many more memories yet to be made.
