Meet Mandy

Mandy Domer joined the GSBA team two weeks before the TASTE as our Office Manager. Be sure to say hi to her when you come by the office.

Welcome Mandy! Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a Midwestern girl who moved to Seattle in 2010 and instantly fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. My closet is way too small for all my dresses and since Seattle has some of the best vintage stores in the country, it keeps getting smaller! I’m outgoing and love meeting new people so stop by and say hi!

What did you do before coming to GSBA?
I graduated with a BS in Fashion Merchandising from Kent State University and became the Brand Marketing Manager of a luxury furniture store in Cleveland right out of school. Once in Seattle, I became the Event and Marketing Manager at Rise n’ Shine (now Inspire Youth Project), a local nonprofit that provides support to children and teens affected by HIV/AIDS and at-risk youth who have faced abuse, neglect and homelessness, after volunteering with the organization for a year.

How was your first TASTE of GSBA?
The TASTE this year was amazing! Seeing a crowd of that many people come together for the same cause, have so much fun AND raise a record breaking $737,000 for the Scholarship Fund made it a very inspiring evening and I’m already excited to help make next year’s event even better!

What are you looking forward to doing here at GSBA?
I’m just really excited to be part of this diverse and amazing group of people that all have such a strong commitment to the support of the LGBT community.

What is your favorite thing about living on Capitol Hill?
The people and the energy in the neighborhood are my favorite in the whole city! There is always something to do, but my two absolute favorite things about living on the Hill are the bottomless mimosa at The Lookout and burgers at Linda’s.
