Community Relations Director
Bryanne Stewart

Bryanne Stewart moved to Port Angeles after graduating from Clallam Bay High School 15 years ago. She loves the PNW and couldn’t imagine a better or more beautiful place to raise her two daughters. Bryanne’s back ground is in children/family based social work as a behavioral health specialist and parent educator. She received her BAHS through Western Washington University. Helping people who may not be able to help themselves has always been her passion. So, when the opportunity to work with a different population came up, she jumped at the challenge. Bryanne states that she couldn’t have imagined how parallel the two would be. Working for a place like Highland Court fits ideally with her servant heart.
