Hi! My name is Tomi Jo Plastow. Most people know me as T.J. I am a native to Jefferson County, born and raised in Port Townsend. I am married to my high school sweetheart Dave and we have 2 beautiful daughters, Rian and Amy.
   I was led to Rotary when Rian had shown interest in the youth exchange program...
 

   She did a summer exchange with a girl from England. They spent 3 weeks at each home. We were asked around that time if we wanted to host the inbound student that East Jefferson Rotary had coming for the school year. " Yes! Of course!” we said, quite honored. We had a wonderful experience with Yosh from Japan, followed by Joachim from Denmark, Cata from Chile and Pang from Thailand. Somewhere in those years I become an honorary member of the club, and that led into becoming a full fledged member. 

   I have found that East Jefferson Rotary is really a happy place for me. I am involved with a variety of activities, mostly youth. I am a Youth Exchange volunteer, a sponsor for the Interact club at Chimacum high school and on the scholarship committee. Being around students helps with the new ‘ empty nest’. I am also co-chair of the Rose committee and a director on the board. 

   In my real life I am a licensed hairdresser and a group fitness instructor at Evergreen Fitness. I like to camp, hike, bake, jigsaw puzzles and hang out with my family and friends.
