After retiring as a Technical Service Manager at a steel company in 1998, my wife Becky and I moved to Port Angeles. During our many prior visits to the Olympic Peninsula, we greatly enjoyed the Pacific Beaches. We especially liked the tide pools at Rialto Beach. Retirement has given me the time to get more involved with the community and the Olympic Coast Discovery Center is a wonderful place to volunteer. We both greatly enjoy the learning opportunities and meeting people from all over the world.


Jaci Pumphrey Jaci Pumphrey

I was born in Hollywood and grew up in southern California. I first came to Port Angeles in 1966, but then returned to California until I moved here permanently in 1989. I started working as COASST volunteer in 2003. I enjoy working with OCNMS staff, the feeling that I am giving something back to the community, and being a part of the environmental movement. I especially enjoy helping out at community events, talking to young people about the amazing animals that live off our coast.


Bruce Ferguson Bruce Ferguson

I was born and raised in Ballard, graduating from O'Dea High School and Seattle University. I served in the Air Force from 1964 to 1968, then worked for Unigard Insurance Group and the U. S. Post Office. When Gerri and I retired in 2002 we moved to Port Angels and acted as general contractors building our new house. Upon completion of our house in January 2003 both Gerri and I started doing volunteer work. I currently volunteer at the Dry Creek Grange, Streamkeepers and of course the Discovery Center. I am currently the Vice President of the Dry Creek Coalition and neighborhood group determined to preserve and restore the Dry Creek area of West Port Angeles.
