Treehouse Promotes Stefani Coverson to Chief Human Resources Officer

SEATTLE – Stefani Coverson has been promoted to Chief Human Resources Officer at Treehouse. The nonprofit organization partners with youth who have experienced foster care so they have a childhood and a future.

“Stefani has been a key force as Treehouse adapts during the COVID-19 crisis to best serve kids, youth and young adults. Always calm and focused in any situation, she brings a people-first commitment that our staff truly appreciates,” said Lisa Chin, Treehouse CEO. “She’s collaborative, has exceptional risk-analysis, policy development and implementation skills, and we’re excited to have her on the Executive Team.”

An accomplished human resources leader with more than 20 years of experience, Coverson first joined Treehouse earlier this year as Director of Human Resources from Clark College where she served as Vice President of Human Resources & Compliance. She’s also worked for Seattle University, Seattle Public Schools and started her career at the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS).

“I’ve always been drawn to mission-driven organizations and have been a long-time fan of Treehouse,” said Coverson, a Seattle native. “I’m looking forward to designing policies through a racial equity lens, and I’m pleased at the amount of time and effort that Treehouse has already invested there.”

Coverson earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Political Science from Washington State University. She also holds both Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and Senior Certified Professional (SCP) certifications from the HR Certification Institute (HRCI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), respectively.
