On Tuesday, March 6, employees from across the County joined County leaders, former colleagues, and business and labor partners to celebrate the career of Karleen Sakumoto, who is retiring from King County after 38 years of service.
Karleen served every County Executive from John Spellman to Dow Constantine, the last 12 years as Manager of Employee Health and Well-Being, overseeing the creation of the nationally recognized Health Incentive program.
Karleen’s legacy will live on through her achievements, the relentlessly positive attitude she brought to work every day, and the many memories she leaves us with.
Watch this short video which captures some of the lighter moments of Karleen’s career. Congratulations Karleen – you will be missed!
