Since graduating in 2006 from The Evergreen State College, Ellie has been dedicating the better part of her days to see that the Seasons runs smoothly. From putting up posters to writing budgets to booking shows, to tearing tickets, she has worked in every facet of the organization and loves presenting events that enrich the Yakima Community.

Before starting with The Seasons, Nick had an extensive history in the food and beverage hospitality industry. He has worked in nearly every reputable restaurant in town, as well as restaurants out of state and out of country.
After nearly graduating with an Environmental Science degree from Western Washington University, Nick decided to take the high road and move to Mexico for four months to learn how to surf and be a beach bum. This choice led to many other travels including two six week explorations of the east coast, a two week excursion to Costa Rica, and a month long experience at the Winter Olympics 2010 in Vancouver, B.C.. Now full of stories, Nick has become part of the team supporting great music in the valley and the development of Downtown Yakima. Being born in Yakima, Nick takes a serious pride in the promotion of this valley.
