Meet the Board
Todd Thomas, President
I have been on the HOA Board for 5 years. I am married to Kathy going on 44 years and we have been property owners in Sunland for over 25 years and we became fulltime residents 4 years ago. We have 2 daughters and 4 grandkids. I retired from the Federal Aviation Administration after over 35 years. I was the Air Traffic Manager at Seattle Terminal Radar Approach Control when I retired. Prior to that I served 4 years in the Marine Corps. I enjoy doing anything outdoors; waterskiing, off-roading, hunting, fishing, or just being out on the water.
You may have seen me run/walk the hill with Bogey our German Shorthair Pointer or cruising around in my vintage bronco half cab or perhaps out on the water on our yellow pontoon boat.
Bryce Good, Vice President / Master Planning Committee
My wife and I are new to the Sunland community. We live in Lake Stevens and enjoy visiting Sunland year-round. I have been on the Board of a past HOA community that we lived in and I am currently the Vice-President on the Board of Directors for Financial & Security Products Association. I look forward to meeting more people in the Sunland community over the next 3 years.
Shari Wood-Richardson, Treasurer
My husband Matt and I have been in Sunland for 7 years with our family of 5 children and now 2 grandchildren. We have made many friends in Sunland and over our time here we have seen the community go through growth and change. I would like to work with the board and the residents to help make positive improvements to Sunland.
I have been treasurer of the Quilomene Yacht Club in Sunland for the past 6 years and while working to obtain our permit during that time, I have built a working relationship with Grant PUD, NOA and other governmental agencies.
I am a second-generation CPA and now partner with my son Stefan, our firms third generation CPA. My passion in helping others and guiding clients to financial success is what made a part-time file clerk position at age 16 turn into a 35-plus year career. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, entertaining, reading a good book, and relaxing at our home in Sunland with our family and friends.
Diane Wetzel, Communications / Website / CC&R Committee
I’ve been a Sunland member for 30 years and have loved this place since the first time we drove down the switchbacks! I’m lucky to be retired from the working world. I enjoy spending time with my family and am blessed to be a grandma. I’ve been part of a local multi-agency team for 5 years working to reduce problems caused by large concert crowds in Sunland. I’ve also worked on the project to establish current CC&R’s. I’m an avid fan of live music and have enjoyed well over 50 concerts at the Gorge. I love spending time outdoors – walking, gardening and taking pictures. You may see me out and about in Sunland with our yellow lab, Sage.
Tracey Hilliard, Secretary / Website / Pool Committee
Hello fellow Sunlanders! My husband Mark and I have enjoyed owning in Sunland since 2003. We have two daughters which practically grew up down here and two mini Schnauzers who love the beach and boating!
For our family, Sunland is a place where we can relax, have fun, and enjoy all the incredible surroundings. We were lucky enough to find this spot thru friends and family and have been grateful to meet some amazing people throughout our time here. In my 8 to 5 life, I work as the HR Rep & Community Outreach Coord. for a Commercial General Contractor in Seattle. I have also served 10 years as the Secretary/Treasurer for a competitive dance team in Bellevue.
As a Board Member, I hope to lend my experience of working with people, businesses and communities in both public and private sector to this role.
I very much enjoy working with people and respect other’s opinions and needs, as we are all coming from different places at different times in our lives. As we start to spend more time and eventually retire here, I want to be able to help wherever there is a need - with the goal of keeping Sunland that GREAT place for family and friends to appreciate for years to come.
Brad Stine, Park & Pool
I have been a Sunland resident for 6 years. I am an active community member with a background in management and value the chance to contribute to our community further and ensure fiscal responsibility for all residents.
Before retirement 2 years ago, I worked for the Sherwin Williams Company for 34 years and managed a 64 million dollar business unit with approximately 200 employees as direct reports. The experience of leading a profitable business has prepared me for this endeavor. Since retirement I have joined the local volunteer fire department which has allowed me to expand my knowledge of our community as well as serve or friends and neighbors when in dire situations.
I get along well with others when working in a group setting and I have the ability to help others find common ground when they disagree on what actions to take. Sometimes, it just takes a little negotiating to help reach a reasonable agreement that benefits the group. I am confident that I have the skills and experience to hold this position and to be a great benefit to the Board.
