Silky Russell is the Case Manager for GRAVITY in Yelm. She began working with GRAVITY in 2016 as an Academic Coach after working as the Event Coordinator for a large, local outdoor store. She is originally from southern California, where she grew up in the foster care system. With hard work and determination to not become another statistic, she finished high school and went on to college.
Silky is the first person in her family earn a degree and go on to graduate school…albeit, nearly 12 years to do it. She has her AS in Business Management, her BA in Organizational Management, and soon, her MS in Management and Leadership. She has put her degrees to use while working with the United States Army and running two of her own business’.
It may be hard to believe (since she is only 28 😉), but she has three children that range from 21-1, so there is no fooling her. She also has two furry lab babies.
Silky enjoys traveling and has been fortunate enough to go to nine different countries and 16 different states. When she isn’t traveling, she is having fun at GRAVITY. She chose to work at GRAVITY because of the students the program serves. Having a stable adult presence is something that she wished she had growing up, and hopes to be that constant in the lives of the GRAVITY youth.
