Spokane Valley

Who makes Spokane Valley what it is?

A city is made up from the people who live there. It’s the sum of their experiences, trials, joys, victories and everyday life that makes a community what it is. One reason why I spend so much time driving around Spokane Valley and drink so much coffee (I haven’t slept since I got on this beat…) is because I want to meet the people who live here - and I need your help. 

I would like to do a series of short profiles of Valley residents for the blog. Who do you think I should profile? Your son’s preschool teacher? Your daughter’s soccer coach? Your neighbor? The guy who makes your coffee every morning? Shoot me an email at with name and contact information and let’s see if we can rally some Valley people. I will swing by with my camera and my notepad and visit for a bit – then make you famous here on the Spokane Valley Blog.
