Kai Abrahamson, Board President

Kai is a newer member of the community, most recently moved here from a small town in northern Minnesota and he is excited to get to know more about Olympia. He has a passion for most things outdoors so if he is not volunteering for Mpowerment, Pizza Klatch, or Capital City Pride, he will most likely be found in one of the many great PNW trails.
