Champion Luncheon

Pastor Annie Jones-Barnes is energized by relationships and garners relational capital from executives and grassroots leaders alike. Currently, she works as the Managing Partner/Principal Consultant at Colemon and Associates who specializes in diversity, equity, and inclusion solutions. Annie served a 20-year stint with the Northwest Leadership Foundation, where she served as a Citywide Director and Executive Vice President. She has a keen eye for expansion and quality improvements and has served as a turn-around expert in nonprofit programming. Her passions are music, people, and creating. Her current volunteer activities include Director on the board of the Puyallup Watershed Initiative and a Program Committee member for the American Leadership Forum.

Bethany Montgomery from Tacoma, Washington is an Eastern Washington University (EWU) alumna. She attended EWU on a full athletic scholarship for basketball. She underwent heart surgery in June 2016, cutting her playing career short and forcing her to retire from the game she loved earlier than anticipated. She triumphed during this challenging time and earned a Bachelor’s degree (Marketing) in 3 years and a Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) in 1 year. Now that Bethany has completed her formal education, she is pursuing her passion for poetry. She has always been a writer and used poetry as a way to express herself. She believes everyone should live out their dreams and do what they love. Power 2 The Poetry is an extension of Bethany’s heart and soul. Her life’s purpose is to eliminate all the darkness in the world by spreading light and love through the power of the tongue.
