Rebecca Chan is a licensed CPA and Finance Manager at Providence St Joseph Health, with more than 15 years of healthcare finance experience.
She earned a bachelor’s in business administration with a concentration in accounting from the University of Washington. 

A resident of the city of Shoreline, Chan has volunteered with a variety of nonprofit organizations for many years and currently serves on the King County Women’s Advisory Board, focusing on gender-based violence. 

"As a first-born daughter of an immigrant family, I know the importance of education and mentorship. 
"Being a Shoreline trustee resonates with my core values of education and healthcare as human rights; these basic needs translate to a safe and healthy community. The community college system is the pipeline to living wage jobs in healthcare and other industries,” Chan said.
