Gov. Jay Inslee appointed three commissioners to the Washington State Women’s Commission in September, including Sequim resident Vicki Lowe, who serves as executive director for the American Indian Health Commission.

Lowe is a descendant of both the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and the Bella Coola First Nations from Canada. She began her career in health care after seeing first-hand the inequities facing tribal members in accessing health care services.

Others named to the commissioner are Quinn Dalan, executive director of the Yakima County Volunteer Attorney Services, and Anna Franklin, director of clinical effectiveness for Providence Health Care in Spokane.

“These three women have invaluable knowledge and expertise of the ways in which different socio-economic factors impact women in our state,” Inslee said.

”I know that they will be valuable additions to the Commission and I look forward to working with them to make Washington a more equitable state.”
