Sarah McMahan has been an ECHHO board member, and brings her experience in non-profit work, with public speaking, fund-raising motivation and staff management into our office. One of our staff members referred to her as adding “light and strength” to an already extremely competent and congenial staff.


Walt Hill is our Medical Equipment Associate. Walt has the qualities of good humor, efficiency and mechanical expertise in just the right combination for ECHHO. Walt is in charge of repairing, maintaining, and distributing medical equipment. Walt has lived in Washington for most of his life. An enthusiastic softball player in our area, Walt and his wife travel to St. George, Utah for the Summer Senior Olympics. We are very lucky to have Walt on our team.


Rich Heitmann is our office manager. When Rich and his wife Jodi moved to Port Townsend from the Washington, D.C. area they were impressed by the spirit of volunteerism that they found in our community. Excited to be a part of ECHHO, Rich helps with coordinating transportation requests, assists in the distribution of medical equipment and creates the monthly newsletter. Rich also keeps the database updated, produces monthly statistical reports, processes donations and fills in for the other staff members in their absences.


Jeffrey comes to ECHHO as our awesome O3A Intern who takes the phone calls and assigns drivers to clients. He worked in Alaska’s mining industry until 2 years ago, when his sister Sue said to come back to Port Townsend. He is very, very glad he did, “I really like it here!” We like having him here!!!
