Chair: Greg Psaltis
Greg has been a member of Unity of Olympia since 1986 and has served in many positions in the church. He was previously a member of the Board of Trustees for a full three-year term and was the treasurer for the final two years. He also led the Prosperity and Stewardship committee (now called the Finance Team) for his tenure as treasurer and stayed active on the committee beyond his obligated time. He served as an usher for several years until his role as back-up platform assistant became more "full-time." He is currently in charge of creating the script and order of service for the streaming online Sunday services and recently was a member of a task force that was given the responsibility to determine how to best use the Unity of Olympia property for the short term. This led to his heightened interest in serving on the board of trustees to establish a longer-term plan for the church property.
Vice-Chair: Addie Robinson
I am a retired elementary school teacher, the widow of a loving, smart engineer, the mother of three awesome sons, and a grandmother of two wonderful grandsons and four terrific granddaughters. I love spending time with family and friends, value giving back to my communities, and need to express creativity through painting, photography, gardening, and cooking. I feel that I have come full circle since I grew up in Unity in Florida and have come to appreciate the love I've found in Unity Of Olympia.
Treasurer: Diana Ehri
I enjoy spending my time with my husband, Ric, and our 2 dogs Bernie and Saige, our son Ben and daughter-in-law Liz, my family, and our close group of friends. I have a passion for traveling, gardening, cooking, sewing, needle work, camping, and clamming.
I have a master's degree in organizational systems from Pacific Lutheran University. I retired from state service after working at the Department of Health for 30 years. I continue to keep active in public health volunteering as a site reviewer for the Public Health Accreditation Board. I have been an active member of Unity of Olympia for 3 years. During this time, I have helped with the lunch program, the welcoming committee, and the finance committee.
Secretary: Susan McClure
I was born the 3rd child of 4 on a dairy farm 7 miles south of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The farm was a lovely place where I was able to connect with spirit in nature and have the benefit of fresh air, organic vegetables, and grass fed beef. I graduated from The University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia where I majored in Medical Technology. I then pursued a career in hospital clinical laboratories ending as the Laboratory Manager at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
I then graduated from Wharton School of Business at the Univ of PA where I majored in Health Care and had a 5 year career in Hospital Administration. After a spiritual awakening in 1986 that resulted in sobriety, I eventually realized that a different career would make better use of my skills and abilities. After moving to Olympia in 1993 I started a Financial Planning business which I built over the ensuring 29 years. I sold the business and retired in June of 2021. In my next act I have joined Unity of Olympia, joined the Peace Choir, and learned to play pickleball with my husband. I continue to enjoy gardening, hiking, travel, sponsoring women, and facilitating a spiritual release technique with individuals.

I was born in Artesia, NM. Went to high school in Manhattan Beach, CA. Attended UCLA and graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering. I have a PE licence in 11 states including WA. I am retired and for the last 5 years have toured small towns around the USA. On my third tour of Olympia, my van had an engine fire. God is good all the time. It lead me here, the most beautiful place in my travels. And forced me to stop. I got the hint and am here to stay.
Member-at-Large: Holly Sharpe
I grew up in Michigan and spent time in Colorado and Alaska and have lived in Washington since 1977.
