PRESIDENT: Jenelle Erickson

I have been on the Storm Aquatics board in the fundraising capacity for the last year. I have a good working knowledge of the team and it’s needs as well as a positive working relationship with other board members. As part of my real job, as a speech therapist in the schools, I’ve had the opportunity to lead and be a part of many teams. I can work efficiently at completing tasks and collaboratively to solve problems. My son is entering his third year of swim and our family loves this team and I am committed to helping it grow. 

VICE PRESIDENT: Jen Oden

I am re-nominating myself for the Vice President position of the Storm Aquatics Board. I have seven years of experience serving on a non-profit board for the Washington Lakes Protection Association. Duties as a board member have included, annual conference planning, fundraising, informing policy, membership recruitment and communications and Treasury duties. In addition, I have 15 years of project management experience in the field of water quality.

SECRETARY: Becky Seiler

I hope to become Secretary for Storm so I can serve our swim community. We have been members of Storm Aquatics for over two years and love the family we’ve built here. I am able to consistently attend board meetings and keep a record of the important conversations and decisions we make. I hope you’ll vote for me to serve our Storm team.
