Ryann was born to be a community builder. In a pursuit to change the world, they spent the last few years moving between three states and having more jobs than fingers, and has returned to the Lilac City to follow their passion to make Spokane an examplary city of sustainable and resilient living. Their experience in numerous community activities such as neighborhood councils and Spokane’s real estate industry has been advantageous in broadening their perspective on life and inspiring ideas for the future. Ryann’s favorite vegetable is spinach because of Popeye and a fear of doctors has made apples their favorite fruit.
