Diane Oberquell has served Thurston County in many capacities, most notably as a County Commissioner for 20 years. Her work has focused largely on issues of incarceration and rehabilitation, with committee leadership roles dealing with infrastructure improvement, emergency management, and forensics investigation.

Along with her husband, Andrea owns and operates A-Line Land Surveying LLC in Thurston County. She belongs to a family impacted by cystic fibrosis and understands how it affects not only the well-being of the individual with the condition, but also the well-being of other family members and the family as a whole. Because of this, Andrea has been an active member of Cystic Fibrosis Northwest for many years. She has participated in many fundraising events as well as the day-to-day operations. In 2018, Andrea decided to join the board as vice-president. She is looking forward to seeing CFNW grow and expand its reach.
Jennifer has worked for State Farm Insurance for more than 20 years in incident response and recovery. She has also been a committee member of Cystic Fibrosis Northwest for more than 7 years and volunteered at many fundraising events along the way.

In 2018, she decided to take a more active and informed role in decision-making by joining the board to contribute to the fulfillment of the organization’s future successes.
