Jane Martin Lynch
Nearly every industry – every company – faces the same HR issues, such as recruiting, training, compliance, scheduling and much more. But what distinguishes an exceptionally valuable HR professional is the ability to recognize and address those issues that are entirely unique to each individual business. And that’s what makes Jane such an important member of the FIT team. During her decades-long career in HR, the breadth of her experience has grown to include key roles in a wide range of businesses, including healthcare, IT, television, non-profit and retail. She’s proven herself a creative, energetic leader with strong communication skills. Compassionate, empathetic and versatile, she quickly becomes a trusted and prized collaborator with managers and employees alike. They call on her ability to quickly size up a situation, devise the best strategy and to provide the inspiration and leadership to enact that strategy. Her high energy persists away from the office, where she enjoys time with family, attending Husky home games, learning French, travelling and performing in local theater.

John brings to his position a background rich in ability and experience, honed during an extensive and remarkably distinguished career in the United States armed forces. Accordingly, he understands to an exceptional degree the value of discipline, proper training and a sense of duty in both leadership and collaborative positions.
John served multiple tours around the world, including stints in Iraq and Afghanistan. His duties included medical and logistical support for air and ground operations. In Afghanistan, he developed a Doula program successful in reducing infant mortality, and also enacted a clean water and pest control initiative which significantly reduced illness for civilians, American soldiers and members of the Afghani National Guard positioned in remote outposts. John graduated from the University of Washington Magna Cum Laude, developing even further his extreme interest and dedication to safety, health and environment. In 2018, John was named an Environmental Health and Safety Officer for Boeing, placed in its prestigious 747 “Queen of the Skies” Facility, overseeing maintenance and production safety. He is currently working to earn a Certified Safety Professional Certificate.
What do I love about Safety? - I love Safety because there is no other career like it in terms of learning opportunities. Each new area I work brings new challenges and, more importantly, more knowledge of each industry and a different way to approach safe practices. Although the basics of safety remain relatively unchanged, the applications and methods which Safety is applied is nearly as endless as the opportunity it provides to learn new things and explore new horizons. I love helping to solve problems, especially ones I do not know the answers to.
