“After raising two girls of my own, I have witnessed the positive impact kids experience when they have a solid foundation. As a community, we need to take every opportunity to provide support for kids as changing their upward trajectory when they are young can have an enormous impact on their future,” Droppelman says.

Ted grew up in Seattle, Washington and currently lives in Bellevue. When he is not wearing his professional hat, he enjoys spending time with his wife and kids doing anything outdoors.
