 E. Renae is an Army Veteran, wife, mother, and grandparent/guardian whose been raising her two young grandchildren for the past 4 years. Early on she noted they were not developing along with their peers and sought help. She walked into SSP2P tired, alone, and with a lot of questions. An hour and a half later she walked out with a renewed energy, answers, and a motivated and compassionate Early Intervention team at her shoulders! From her heart to yours, it is truly an honor to be a part of and serve on the SSP2P board. For not only her grandchildren, but to all those who came before, are currently being served, and the countless others that have yet to come. Theirs is truly a brighter future!!

Dee Freeman.jpg

2020-21 Board Member: Dee Freeman

Working with families to help all children reach their full potential is my passion.   I sincerely believe that the future of every child depends on the efforts of all of us.   As a retired professional educator of more than 50 years I am acutely aware that parents are the first and most important teachers.  When I look back on the lives of all of my students, especially those who had visual, hearing, medical, cognitive or other types of challenges, the ones who have been the most successful are those whose parents had the knowledge to inspire their children.  The more parents know, the better chance of a positive future. Our public school’s systems are seriously overwhelmed, and these kids and their families can’t wait for their support.   The input from the various components of Parent to Parent can be life changing.  I am excited to be a part group that is providing the input to enhance the future of our entire community.

Hi, I'm Susan Bakke, a Birth to Five Service Provider for Deaf and Hard of Hearing children and their families. I work for the WA Center for Deaf/HH Youth, as part of their Outreach Team.

After 16 years as a classroom Teacher of the Deaf, I was thrilled to become an Early Intervention home visitor. I love working with babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and parents to help young children develop language and become good communicators!

I grew up in Portland, OR, and go there monthly to visit family. I've lived in Olympia for 21 years.

Besides working, I spend time reading, hiking, gardening, cooking, and traveling. Countries I've visited include Iceland, Ecuador, Peru, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, and most of western Europe. I value international friendships!

When I retire, I want to continue traveling, and spend lots of time reading to young children!
