Bethany Doane, operations manager and principal, is a new board member with the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber. Her three-year term with the board of directors began in August.

Doane was a member of the most recent class of the Business Leadership Academy of Tacoma-Pierce County. Sponsored by the chamber and Pacific Lutheran University, the three-month program fosters professional growth and leadership skills.

“It’s been rewarding to work with people from other industries through the academy and the chamber board,” Doane said. “We all bring different experiences to the same cause: growing the local business community.”

Doane joined JayRay in November 2012. Prior to that she was the finance billing manager at McGladrey, a national assurance, tax and consulting firm. She lives in Fox Island and graduated from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s degree in finance and a minor in marketing.
