KAI HANSON

He/They

Kai's spirit and love for others is the reason we are all here, and he continues to inspire us to create spaces that are inclusive for all.  When not at school, you can find Kai either creating on his tablet, playing ukulele or emerging themselves in the latest episode of a chosen anime.

Bio coming soon!

SIERRA HEIN

Vice President (2022-2025)

Hi! I am Sierra (she/her) , a psychology major at Western Washington University and plan to become a high school counselor because I love helping and learning about others. I am passionate about creating environments for LGBTQ+ youth to feel included, loved, and cherished for being who they are. I’m a spunky 20-year-old who loves anything that allows me to use my creative mind, like painting and journaling, and I enjoy tie-dying clothes because everything needs a little more color! I will always be a safe space anyone can come to talk to, so feel free to reach out to me I would love to chat!

DOUGAL BROWNLIE

Director at Large (2022-2025)
Director of PR & Communications

Dougal (he/him/his) is the current Director at Large and Director of PR & Communications of this wonderful organization. He is thrilled to be a part of Kaylee’s Kamp Foundation because they are creating a space that helps to not just accept but include LGBTQ+ kids in summer camps as well as in every part of day-to-day life. Dougal has spent over half a decade working in the visual space creating photos and videos for a variety of clients but at his core, the work he is most drawn to is focused on humanity and our connection one and other, as well as the earth at large. When he is not creating visuals, he can be found creating and enjoying various different types of food, having a solo dance party in his car, or spending quality time with his family, their dog Rosie, and his partner Nick.

MADELINE HORNUNG

Secretary (2022-2025)

Madeline was born and raised in San Diego, but has finally settled down here in Washington. She owns a business and has an almost 2 year old son who lights up her world.  Madeline's hope is that her son will get to see the world as a place where everyone can live confidently in their truth. Some of her own family and friends did not have a safe space to be themselves, so she is passionate about making sure today's LGBTQ+ youth have those safe and inclusive places to celebrate who they are!

STACEY STOKELEY

Treasurer (2022-2025)

Stacey (she/her/hers) was born & raised in Florida and moved to WA in 2008.    Stacey grew up attending summer camp every year, and values the experience & memories that brought.  Growing up as a "camp kid" was such an amazing experience, and she feels like everyone should have a chance to experience the joy without fear of being included. 


Stacey has been recognized as a Friend of PRIDE in Bellingham, and she has been involved in many PRIDE events throughout the years.  She has been an accountant for more than a decade and is very excited to join the Kaylee's Kamp Foundation team!
