GILA FEIN (she/her)
I’m a native of Seattle, wife of Heather, mother of three grown children and I work as a psychotherapist in Kirkland.
I’ve been attending Salt House since the Summer of 2016. I currently serve on our council as President. I have a deep respect for the importance of community and connection, person to person, eye to eye and the power of love and laughter to ground us in who we are, to connect us and to heal. I consider religious study one of my favorite hobbies and deeply value a posture of radical inclusion as modeled by Jesus and practiced at Salt House.
MACY ZWANZIG (she/her)
I was born in a small college town in Virginia, the oldest of four children. In the thick of the Bible Belt, I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior at the tender age of five, late one night with my dad by my side. My world was small, insular and pleasant. I have many fond memories of childhood. I became very involved in Young Life throughout high school and college, and it shaped many of the ways that I saw and understood the world. Post-college, I began to realize that some of the simplistic views I held, particularly where my faith was concerned, just didn’t work for me anymore. Growing up had broadened and enriched my worldview and my understanding of faith. As I have worked to deconstruct and reconstruct my faith throughout my 20s and into my 30s, I have been lucky enough to have amazing, inspiring friends and family all along my journey. They have encouraged thought, and the many iterations of death and resurrection as I continue to wrestle with what my faith means, and how to best practice it.

When I’m not participating in the Salt House kitchen, I spend my week working in Microsoft’s Worldwide Learning department supporting the customer service organization. I have worked for Microsoft for 17+ years primarily in finance roles that allowed me, and my husband Parker, to experience living in Tokyo, Seoul and Singapore for 12 years. Prior to Microsoft, I worked in audit functions as a practicing CPA. I’m a native of Washington State, a proud graduate of Washington State University (GO COUGS!) and received my MBA in International Business.

Outside of college and graduate school, I have lived on the Eastside my whole life. I am a risk management analyst for a local medical device manufacturer called Ocular Instruments. I love my Seattle sports teams and have been described as a sports and Bible nerd. My wife Wendy, son Connor and I have been so grateful that we have become a part of the Salt House community and have been able to join you in experiencing and putting into action the radical welcome and love of Christ Jesus.
ANNE ANDERSON (she/her)
AT-LARGE COUNCIL MEMBER
I am a Washington native, a UW grad, and a nurse since 1981. I work with the palliative care program at Seattle Children's Hospital. I have been married for 37 years to Jim, and we have lived a short walk from Salt House for the past 36 years, so it feels right to be a part of this community in our neighborhood. We have four kids who all graduated from Lake Washington HS. We like to spend time sailing, camping and visiting national parks. My hope in serving at Salt House is to be more connected in the ways that we are caring for our community, both here at Salt House and with the permanent shelter project. I am involved with our community care ministry, and I have enjoyed my time helping out in the nursery. I feel so grateful for who we are as a community at Salt House, and have appreciated being more engaged with Salt House by serving on the church council.
LINNEA ANDERSON (she/her)
AT-LARGE COUNCIL MEMBER
Hi, my name is Linnea Anderson. You may recognize me from the back of the house in the sound booth most Sunday mornings. I have the power of the mute button ;). I grew up here in Kirkland, originally attending HSLC. Also running the sound booth there too :). I went to Juanita HS then on to PLU (Go Lutes!) graduating in 2012. I currently work at Seattle Children’s Hospital as a Senior Tech on the Audio Visual team. I have been a part of Salt House since the very beginning. I remember when I first met with Kim Saunders about the idea of a young adult ministry. Would I be interested? Would I even attend? Would I be interested in being involved from the ground up? Clearly, I was as I am still here!! I have seen this church and community grow in just a few years. I am excited for this next chapter and opportunity to be a part of Salt House council and to continue to help Salt House grow and live.
