“Don't be afraid to create something completely different."

The rigor and discipline of classical ballet taught Lia Koehn patience, perseverance, and the value of hard work. Her commitment to international volunteer work continually reminders her of the commonalities among people and furthers her ability to bridge differences and build rewarding relationships. Dedicated and collaborative, she is a servant leader who places people and problem-solving center stage.

Lia’s drive to explore, learn, and make a difference by helping people solve problems has shaped her career. Her 15 years of experience includes roles in the legal industry — where she built processes and teams to resolve large-scale, high-profile cases, and healthcare — where she defined process improvement strategies and outreach initiatives. Lia holds a bachelor’s degree in international studies and Spanish from Western Washington University.
