Co- Founder Crystal Gonzales
Queen Bee of the WRA. Crystal started out the mother of a competitive rider (her daughter Haily), to a parent volunteer, to co founding the WRA with the vision of creating a well managed and structured organization. She plays a role in everything that makes this organization run from filing paperwork, scheduling practices, coordinating transportation, as well as helping coach and running competitions. Her passion for snowboarding and administrative backround has allowed her to be a key element in the balance of fun and discipline it takes to run a non-profit.
Co- Founder Rhonda Kittredge
Rhonda is the glue that keeps this whole team together and treats everyone surrounding this organization with a motherly love that we are fortunate to have. She always puts the team first and also helped establish the original snowboard team in 2008 when her oldest son was a Freshman at Aloha High School. She has been a part of the team since, and her youngest son is currently in his second season with the WRA. She is dedicated to ensuring WRA is a well-oiled machine, making it possible for students from the entire Beaverton School District to have the chance to be part of the snowboard team at their school.
