Posted Thursday, December 15, 2022

Skagit PUD welcomes Corrin Hamburg to its Board of Commissioners. Hamburg takes the seat previously held by Germaine Kornegay, who was appointed to the board in August 2020.

Corrin Hamburg“I’m passionate about serving my community,” Hamburg said. “My focus is on the needs of my constituents and protecting the integrity of our rural community. I know I’ll make thoughtful decisions that will best represent my constituents.”

Hamburg brings to the position a background in water resource management. Since 2018, she has served as the laboratory supervisor at the city of Anacortes’s wastewater treatment plant. Hamburg previously managed the environmental conservation lab at Skagit Valley College from 2014 to 2018.

Hamburg earned a bachelor’s degree in environmental science from Washington State University.

Growing up as a fifth-generation Skagitonian, Hamburg says she spent much of her time along the Skagit River on the family’s farm.“I spent my youth salmon fishing, flood fighting, and volunteering,” Hamburg said. “My love for the Skagit River, paired with my love for science, led me on an academic and professional journey to get me to where I am today.”

As a committed community member, Hamburg volunteers at the Sedro-Woolley Eagles Club, Dike District 17, and at her stepson’s 4-H club. During the pandemic, Hamburg cooked meals for the Eagles Club and donated meals to local first responders and emergency room staff.

When not working or volunteering, Hamburg can be found enjoying the beauty of Skagit Valley while hiking and camping. Hamburg says she especially enjoys time fishing the Skagit River with her family.
