Jolanta Paliswiat

VP of Communication and Membership
I live in Kirkland with my husband and two young daughters. I moved to WA 15 years ago from Poland (from a small village near Zielona Góra). I hold master’s degree in education/social work. I got involved in the Polish community in Seattle few years ago, when I was staying at home with my kids. I started as a volunteer for Polish Festival and a vendor for Bazaars. Later I was elected for the Board of Trustees and in 2018 for Board of Officers. I’ve been a member of the Board since then. I’m currently a VP of Communication and Membership. My responsibilities include overseeing communication (Social Media, website, direct contact), memberships inquiries, and community engagement (collaboration with organizations within and outside of PHA). I am still involved in Bazaars, as a marketplace coordinator, and I volunteer for major events in the Polish community. I am a member of Polish Seattle Foundation and Polish Ladies Club “Koło Pań”.

Gigia Domanski

Paulina Phung

VP of Culture
If you hear someone yelling and running in heels in PHA that’s most likely me. The only member of ‘Polish Women’s Club’ that can’t cook. Currently running a small beauty studio in West Seattle. I’m really passionate about sailing and traditional Polish dances.

Mariola Klein

VP of Entertainment

Adriana Olewska

Recording Secretary
I live in Redmond with my husband and three kids. I moved to the Seattle area 19 years ago from Zielona Góra in Poland. I hold a master’s degree in microbiology. I got involved in the Polish community in Seattle several years ago when my older kids joined Polish Scouts. Over the years I taught (on and off) at Polish School in Bellevue and St. Margaret Church Sunday School. I would like to continue being engaged in various Polish communities in the area.

Magdalena Wysocka

Correspondence Secretary
I live in Kirkland with my husband and our dog. We moved to USA a little over 2 years ago from Ireland. I hold a master’s degree in Economics. I got involved in the Polish community right away after we moved here. I started as a volunteer with preparing dumplings for bazaars, later as a volunteer for the Polish festival, and worked with a few kinds of workshops in Polish home.
