Peyina Lin-Roberts, President*
After serving as the Co-Director of Coaching Equity in 2021 and the VP/President Elect in 2022, I am thrilled to serve as the chapter President in 2023! ICFWA is a leading chapter because board members are willing to trust, be vulnerable, learn, and co-create; and chapter members' participation enriches our programs. We continue to collectively amplify the messages that: a) canned solutions cannot address the complex inequitable structures of social systems; and b) it takes each and everyone of us to do our part in self-development, collective leadership, and humble courage to live up to our mission. I am committed to nurturing and expanding our movement towards developing meaningful relationships, self-transforming mindsets, and equitable social change through conventional and pioneering programs, so that we contribute to ICF Global's vision of "a world where coaching is integral to transforming societies."
Kristal Roberts, Vice President*
I am honored to serve as the Vice-President, President elect, for 2023. I was introduced to the board last year as the Co-Director of Education. I am constantly in awe of the quality of board members and their passion, commitment and dedication to advancing equitable coaching for not only Washington but beyond. I am grateful for this opportunity to contribute to supporting our chapter to achieve its vision of creating a more just world, where DEIBJ (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging and Justice) is embodied in what it means to be a coach, and coaching becomes an integral part of a thriving society.
Barbara Visser, Past President*
As an ICF member, I have received great value in both the local and global community of coaches through networking, professional development, and volunteer opportunities. Saying “yes” to a leadership role allowed me to deepen my alignment with the shared vision and commitment of this team holding space for a transforming organization, where diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice is embodied in what it means to be a coach.
Nicole D. Franklin: Director of Coaching Equity*

I bring with me the experience gained from volunteering in the Equity Working Group along with many years working with underserved communities to developing pragmatic solutions to problems. Joyful about the new challenges intended for deepening Pro-Equity leadership abilities among other professionals within our industry--all while striving towards achieving true systemic change at all levels around quality coaching practices! I am passionate about supporting professionals on their journey towards Pro-Equity Anti-Racism leadership development through executive & life coaching. It's such an exciting privilege to work with you and our board to equip ourselves with equity tools that can help foster positive change and a culture of belonging!
Kara Cuzzetto, Treasurer*
I am very excited to bring my finance background to the position of treasurer for WA ICF board of directors in 2023. My vision would be that finances are not a barrier to becoming a coach. I look forward to supporting programs that will make this a reality. Thank you for the opportunity to serve on this board and give back to the community that has given me so much.

Marriot Winquist Co-Directors of Partnerships
I'm excited to join the ICF WA Board this year as the Co-Director of Partnerships.

As Co-Director of Partnerships, I am committed to building great leaders by bringing world-class, professional coaching to organizations and communities that may otherwise not be able to experience this type of accelerated advancement in leadership growth.
