Our Team

Tiffany Hankins, Executive Director

Tiffany Hankins became executive director in January 2017 after organizing NARAL Pro-Choice Washington members for 7 years. She has also volunteered with the CAIR Project, a regional abortion fund in the Pacific Northwest, for 6 years. She has recently helped build a partnership between these organizations to expand a program to provide lodging and transportation to people traveling to the Seattle area for an abortion. She grew up on the Gulf Coast and has experienced first-hand regional disparities in accessing timely reproductive health care. She hit the westward trail in 2008 and now lives in Seattle with her cat Peeky.

 
Elissa Goss, Political Director
Elissa's greatest passion is mobilizing communities around economic and health justice through legislative and grassroots advocacy. Most recently she was Executive Director of the Washington Student Association, where she supported students' lobbying efforts around college affordability, campus sexual assault, and rights for students with disabilities. She sees reproductive rights at the intersection of economic, racial, feminist, and queer organizing, and is a proud graduate of The Evergreen State College. Elissa moved to the PNW from Texas and is still in search of acceptable BBQ in Washington.

Katie Behrends, Operations Director
Katie has ten years of experience in nonprofit finance and administration. Before joining the team at NARAL she was Associate Director at 501 Commons and HR Generalist at Forterra. She continues to serve as a volunteer consultant with 501 Commons, and spends the rest of her free time spoiling her dog and buying yarn for knitting projects that she will never complete. Katie earned her PHR certification in 2013.

Sarah Coppock-Pector, Development Manager
Sarah Coppock-Pector is a fundraiser and event planner with experience working for issue-based nonprofits and political campaigns, including Planned Parenthood MN, ND, and SD.
