Tri County Economic Development District (TEDD) is pleased to welcome Liv Stecker to #TeamTEDD as the new Regional Mobility and Veterans Services Coordinator, and she brings decades of involvement with the Veteran community with her.
Stecker helped to build the American Freedom Fund (AFF), a non-profit organization that provides a place for active duty and Veteran service members to come together in a spirit of camaraderie to participate in recreational and competitive sports; to afford the means and opportunity for student Veterans who seek a career in defense or public policy to achieve the next step in their goals; and to raise awareness and financial support for Veteran focused organizations that are providing crucial resources for Veterans in the community. Stecker has spent the last two decades travelling nationally for her work as the AFF’s Program Director and has been serving the local Veteran community with her blog/news column, ‘The Big Voice’, which she uses to help make sure local vets are connected with the opportunities and resources available to them.
Stecker’s professional background has been diverse and multi-faceted; she holds a degree in Parks and Recreation Management from Northern Arizona University, is a wildland firefighter for the U.S. Forest Service, and is a regular contributor to many local and national publications as a freelance writer. “I am excited for the networking opportunities that this role will provide and for the chance to plug in to my community in a more meaningful way with the team here at TEDD,” Stecker says. She lives in Colville with her dogs and daughters.
Tri County Economic Development District was formed in 1969 and works with local businesses, communities and other organizations in Ferry, Pend Oreille and Stevens counties to help develop a stable and diverse economy. For more information, please visit www.tricountyedd.com or call 509.684.4571.
