Andie Gernon


Andie Gernon has lived and worked in and for Lakewood since moving there when her husband was stationed at Madigan Army Medical Center at Fort Lewis.

An integral part of the committee that worked to incorporate the City of Lakewood, she has been laughingly referred to as “The Mother of Lakewood,” a title she bears with good humor. She has spent countless hours over the years volunteering at local schools, tutoring children in reading as well as serving as a basketball coach. She was the first female chair of the Lakewood Community Council and participates in many community coalitions and boards to support health care, education and community building. Andie served on the St. Francis Cabrini Parish Council, the Bellarmine Prep Board of Directors, and co-founded Communities in Schools.

Experience on boards and community building has led Andie to fund development. She helped to raise funds for Bellarmine Prep, YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties, and has co-chaired The Development and Advisory Council of Community Health Care since 2003, raising funds to renovate three major health centers.
