Rich Heitmann is our Director of Operations. 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.


Cassie Reeves joins ECHHO as our new Volunteer Administrator, replacing Dawn Thomas who has retired from ECHHO. Dawn will be missed, but we are also excited that Cassie has stepped up as a volunteer.

Cassie has previous ECHHO experience, doing both driving and office work. With her affable nature, dedication and experience in the non-profit world, she will make a fantastic addition to our staff.


Jeffrey Hall came to ECHHO as our awesome O3A Intern who takes requests for service and assigns volunteers to clients. He has since been hired as a fulltime employee.

Before joining ECHHO, Jeffrey worked in Alaska’s mining industry until his sister Sue asked him to come to Port Townsend. He is very, very glad he did, “I really like it here!” We like having him here!!!
