2015 BOARD OF DIRECTORS
PSPP President / Co-Local Coordinator: Michaela Rand
Merry Meet, my name is Michaela Rand (aka Silvermoon Medicyn) and this is my 2nd year as the PSPP President. I have lived in the Puget Sound Region since 1993 and I currently live in Shoreline. My titles are Medicyn Woman~ Metaphysician. My life threads are woven between Symbiotic Psychic Vampire and Neo~Cosmic Shamanism with a deep focus on Hoodoo and emotional energy healing. I have lived a magical life as long as I can remember.
My prior experience with Pagan Pride has been as a vendor, workshop instructor and coordinator. I personally look forward to being part of Pagan Pride for many years. My goals are to help us grow into one of the nation’s largest gathering for Pagans in this region. I enjoy helping people find themselves and grow into the spiritual being they wish to become in a safe and supporting environment.
PSPP Secretary / Local Coordinator: Sandra McLeish
My name is Sandra, but I go by Sandy to fellow Pagans. I was born and raised in Tacoma, so I’m a true Washingtonian. I joined the U.S. Army, traveled the world, and was medically retired after 14 years. I currently reside in Spanaway. In my spare time I love to hike, fish, gardening and reading. My path started during my late teens (30+ years ago), when I was introduced and studied WICCA. Over the busy year’s I was drawn to nature and the cycle of life. Almost 4 years ago, I became active in the local Pagan community. I spent a lot of time attending public rituals, events and meeting so many wonderful people. I found my “Spiritual home” with Swangrove, a British Traditional Wicca/Gardnerian coven in Tacoma. This is my 3rd year as the PSPP Secretary and 2nd year as a National Local Coordinator. I look forward to working with Pagan’s throughout the whole Puget Sound Region and bringing our diverse community together to share and educate others.
PSPP Treasurer: Nicole Piele
Hello! My name is Nicole and this will be my third year as treasurer for PSPP. I have enjoyed the welcoming arms of the local community and the acceptance of the many paths that we all walk. I have lived all my life in the PNW and cannot see myself anywhere else. This is truly my home, rain and all. Outside of PSPP I enjoy being outdoors, in my garden, or in my kitchen creating up some new herbal salve, tincture or balm. Each year we continue to grow, increas outside participation and find more open doors to share and bring together our communities. I am glad that I can continue to be a part of that growth.
PSPP Vice President: Barney Remington
Hello to all! I'm energized to be entering my second year as the vice-president of PSPP. Our team accomplished amazing things over the last year, and I'm excited to see where we go from here. During my first year on the board, I had worked to expand our partnership with other charitable organizations in the area, and I hope to continue that effort through 2016. I am a firm believer in volunteerism, and I think that strengthening our relationships with our charitable partners will also strengthen our community. As I follow a non-dogmatic Northern Tradition, community and service are cornerstones of my spirituality, and I approach my duties with PSPP from that mindset.
Outside of pagan pride activities, I also like to play RPGs, read, volunteer with animal rescue/welfare groups, attend small festivals, and go wine tasting. I'm also a member of the SCA; though I've been inactive, I have just started getting back out to the archery range and fighting field.
