Tracy Vo

Outreach Coordinator

Hi everyone! I am Tracy Vo. My goal is to have a bachelor’s degree in marketing management. So having every opportunity to work on campus, especially as an outreach coordinator, is valuable for me. During my time at Pierce, I will work hard to improve myself to become more responsible, productive and energetic through experiences while working with my great team! I enjoy helping people both mentally and physically. Plus, I truly want to have as many humanity services as possible to improve the environment. Last, but not least, I love traveling and food— so I work hard, travel hard and then am broke; and then work hard again as that is my purpose of life.

Taimane Rice

Entertainment and Recreation Coordinator

Taimane is a graphic design student. She loves turtles and her big aiga (family). She hopes to use design to build on her love of other art forms and be a “Jackie” of all trades when it comes to design and art. This is Taimane’s second college she has attended, but feels that she has found a great home here at Pierce College Fort Steilacoom. She hopes to create an exciting and encouraging environment for all Pierce students. Drop by Student Life, say hi and share some awesome ideas for future events with your entertainment and recreation coordinator.
