Our Elected Board Members

Robin Thomas – President
Robin and her husband Jay bought their house on Mason St in 2017, and more recently moved Robin’s dad, Bill, and his cat in to live with them. Robin has worked as a Restoration Ecologist, and Jay is a lean practitioner. We love all things Bellingham, the mt biking, the Salish Sea, rain and the community. Robin originally came from Maine, and still has roots in the Northeast.

Jack Wellman – Vice President

Jack and his partner, Emma, have lived in the Sehome neighborhood since 2019. They enjoy long walks along the waterfront to Fairhaven, skiing at Baker, observing our local bald eagles, and taking care of their many houseplants. Jack is passionate about Bellingham’s built environment and working collaboratively with community to create a walkable and affordable Bellingham.

Ian Whiteford – treasurer
(bio to come)

Ingra Schellenberg-Secretary

Ingra is a Sehome renter, passionate gardener and crazy cat lady. She has benefitted tremendously from the warmth and generosity of her Sehome neighbors. She hopes her service on the board can similarly contribute to the interconnectedness of our neighborhood.
