Scott Lindsay has been serving on the Arboretum Foundation board the last nine months, stepping in to fill a vacated seat. He has been very helpful in his service on the Advocacy Committee thanks to his background as an attorney, with experience in policy development on matters of public safety, police reform, and homelessness. Scott has also served as senior counsel to the United States House Oversight Committee for national security matters. Scott and his wife Courtney have two young daughters and live in Madrona, venturing to the Arboretum weekly.
Following her retirement from her own company in 2005, Beverley Song has served as a business consultant in marketing and management to firms in Taiwan and in the Pacific Northwest, helping bridge cultural differences. She also remains active in teaching Mandarin Chinese to various schools and corporations in the Seattle area. Beverley loves bird watching, gardening, singing, and traveling. She believes that we can do our part in saving the earth by taking responsibility for the little things in our daily lives.
