RTS welcomes Summer Intern, Claire Oatey!

RTS is pleased to welcome Claire Oatey as our new Summer Program & Development Intern!


"I was born and raised in Seattle where I attended Roosevelt High School until 2007. I just recently graduated from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington this past May. I was a Sociology major with an Educational Studies minor, a member of the Delta Gamma sorority, and served as an intern my senior year for one of five student-led community service programs offered at Whitman.

Before I go back to school to get my teaching certificate and masters, I am excited to gain experience in the non-profit world (something I would like to continue to be involved in) and hope to find some time to travel. Currently my sights are set on Southeast Asia, but I always find myself thinking about a trip back to Cape Town, South Africa where I studied for half the year in 2009. Meanwhile, I’ll spend my free time running around Greenlake, barbequing at Magnuson Park, watching Mariners games, catching up with old high school friends, and staying connected to Whitman alum in the Seattle area."

"I am very happy to be back in Seattle and have the opportunity to work for RTS. RTS not only provides an invaluable service to the individual homeowners it helps, but it brings a sense of stability and hope to the neighborhood and from there, our city."

Thank you, Claire! We're excited to have you on board!

Say hi to Claire!
