Marit Saltrones

Marit Saltrones is a life-long social activist, currently focused on the resilience and sustainability of Island households as a founder of the Prepared Neighborhoods initiative, and a Board Member of Sustainable Bainbridge. Her deep roots on the Island are reflected in the generations of her family buried at Port Blakely Cemetery. An entrepreneur, she has pioneered video-based distance learning, built and sold two small businesses, managed Northland Cable Television (during the beta tests of cable modem technology), served the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island as President (2002 – 2003) and currently serves as PR Chair for the Rotary Auction. An award winning Executive Producer, she has managed the creation of hundreds of emergency response, emergency medicine, corporate communications and workplace safety training programs. She holds a BA in Media Studies from The Evergreen State College. As a VISTA volunteer she was trained as a community organizer in a direct lineage from the legendary Saul Alinsky. She makes her home on an aging Bainbridge Island orchard, where she gardens and writes poetry.
