Dawn Bauman

Board member since: Jan 2018
Current Term: Jan 2018–Dec 2020
Responsibilities: Co-Liaison, Rose City Riveters; Member, Events; Member, TAFC

Originally, just a kid from Staten Island, NY, Dawn moved back to Portland in 1996.  She’s been supporting University of Portland women’s soccer since the early 2000s.  She joined the 107IST in 2013, when the Thorns started. She’s passionate about watching, supporting, and playing soccer. She’s proud to play for bothBad Decisions FC and Thundercats FC, two of the teams that play under the TAFC umbrella. 

On Timbers match day, you can find Dawn and her wife Wendy at "home" in section 208. For Thorns matches, they enjoy the game from section 109.  

Nick Brock

Board member since: Jan 2017
Current Term: Jan 2017–Dec 2019
Responsibilities: Co-Chair, Game Day Ops; Co-Chair, Events; Member, Community Outreach

Drawn in by the endless clanging of the cowbell, Nick has been a constant presence in 105 since 2009. Starting as a lowly flag mule, Nick braved beer-soaked stairs and various contagions to become co-lead of the Flag Crew. Outside the stadium, driven by his passion for volunteering and helping others, Nick helped form the Community Outreach committee. 

Born in Connecticut, raised on NYC sports, Nick tried, and failed, to be a DC United fan while attending college in DC. After being transferred to Portland for work, Nick decided to give soccer another shot, and has been extremely pleased with his decision ever since. 

Zach Freeman

Board member since: Jan 2018
Current Term: Jan 2018–Dec 2020
Responsibilities: Chair, Partnerships; Member, Community Outreach

Zach moved to Oregon from Maine in 2002. He grew up playing soccer and quickly found a love here watching the Timbers. Zach graduated from Portland State in community development and the atmosphere and engagement within the Timbers Army made a perfect pair.

Zach is active in the Community Outreach committee promoting equality and inclusion. Find him handing out wristbands and working in the Fanladen before each match, and organizing 107IST volunteers every summer at the Oregon Brewers Festival.

Jennifer Ingraham

Board member since: Jan 2019
Current Term: Jan 2019–Dec 2020
Responsibilities: Board Secretary; Chair, Communications

Born and raised in Alaska, Jennifer had zero exposure to soccer until her boys started playing, and she quickly fell in love with the beautiful game. She and her family watched their first Timbers match at the same time as the rest of MLS: the 2011 season opener. They've been in the North End since, usually residing somewhere in 207. 

Jen's been involved with the 107IST since 2014, helping with communications and the occasional tifo or other volunteer effort. In 2015, she took on responsibility for the weekly newsletter, and has shipped it out every week since. Jen has been on nonprofit boards for 15 years, and she's excited to use her experience to serve the 107IST. 

In her professional life, Jennifer is a writer for a massive transportation company, and she is also the manager of a small pool of copy editors for an e-learning development agency.

Stephan Lewis

Board member since: Mar 2013 (interim appointment); Jan 2017 (elected)
Current Term: Jan 2017–Dec 2019
Responsibilities: Chair, Facilities Management; Co-Chair, Community Outreach; Member, Game Day Ops

Portland born and mostly raised, soccer was a big part of Stephan’s upbringing and he started really combining his love of the two when the Timbers started back up in 2001. With a background in architecture, he started studying and practicing community development over 20 years ago to have a greater, more positive impact in our changing landscapes. Central to this practice are the principles of empowerment, participation, inclusion, self-determination, and partnership. 

Very active in his communities, Stephan volunteers his time to the 107IST as a member of the Outreach Committee, representing our interests in the local community, providing day to day operational logistics, and is an active member of the tifo crew. 

Joshua Lucas

Board member since: Jan 2019
Current Term: Jan 2019–Dec 2021
Responsibilities: Co-Lead Game Day Ops; Lead tifo; Warehouse manager; Security; Board member, Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund

Born and raised in Colorado, Joshua found his way to Portland in 2000. Josh is heavily involved in Game Day Ops. He is one of the leads for TA tifo, helps with TA security, runs the tifo warehouse, and assists the rigging crew for both supporters groups. He is also part of the GCSF committee. 

Besides work at a small private school in Portland and soccer, Josh enjoys fly-fishing, spending time with friends, his partner, and dog.

Drew Picard

Board member since: Jan 2017
Current Term: Jan 2017–Dec 2019
Responsibilities: Chair, Travel; Co-Chair, Events; Member, Game Day Ops; Member, Merch

Raised a military brat, Drew moved back to Portland in 2008 to his one true "home". Immediately upon sitting in the North End for the first time in 2009, something just felt right. From that moment on he has spent time volunteering every way he could within the organization until striking up the courage to run for the board. Outside of seeing him captaining the buses up to Seattle Away matches or in the garage with a paintbrush, you can catch him in section 106.

Outside of the 107ist, Drew spends his days working for an ice cream shop and hosting a weekly Trivia Night.

Sherrilynn “Sheba” Rawson

Board member since: Aug 2011
Current Term: Jan 2016–Dec 2021
Responsibilities: Board President; Chair, Community Outreach Committee; Communications Committee; Membership Committee; Technology Working Group; Board member, Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund

107IST delegate from the West Side stands; alternatively, the 107IST delegate from Clackamas County.

Season ticket holder in the west side stands for ten+ years, happy to find and bond with the 116 ultras. She was a bona fide soccer mom long before that.

Sheba is a lifelong bilingual educator, and currently the principal at Heritage Elementary School in Woodburn. Prior to her appointment to the 107IST Board, she served on the boards of other non-profits.

Gabby Rosas

Board member since: Jan 2018
Current Term: Jan 2018–Dec 2020
Responsibilities: Board Vice President; Chair and Co-Liaison, Rose City Riveters

A lifelong soccer fan, Gabby moved to Portland in 2007 and found her way to Timbers, University of Portland, and US Soccer matches as often as possible. When Thorns FC was announced in 2012, there was no turning back. 

Gab has been volunteering with both the Timbers Army and Rose City Riveters for years, and has had a hand in the Riveters' travel and merch planning.

On Timbers matchdays, she's nested in 208. For Thorns, she moves down into the sun to get some more freckles in 108. 

Ray Terrill

Board member since: Jan 2017
Current Term: Jan 2017–Dec 2019
Responsibilities: Chair, TAFC; Co-chair, Technology Working Group; Member, Communications

Ray made his move to Portland in 2009, and has been attending Timbers, Thorns, and T2 matches ever since. While his most visible contribution is probably the photography work he's done for the Timbers Army or Rose City Riveters, he's also been involved in a lot of other little things behind the scenes over the years. Ray is also a proud member of Thundercats FC, one of the many teams that play under the umbrella of TAFC. He's frequently found in Section 108, although with his wife expecting their second in May 2019, they'll probably be making the move to Del Boca Vista, aka Section 208, starting in 2019.

When not working on things on behalf of the 107IST, Ray works in IT for local government, and absolutely loves to talk nerdy.

Maggie Williams

Board member since: Jan 2019
Current Term: Jan 2019–Dec 2021
Responsibilities: Chair, Regional Supporters Group; Member, Travel

Though a native Oregonian, Maggie's first Timbers matches weren’t until the last year of USL, and she didn’t get truly stuck in until a friend brought her to the US Open Cup match in March 2011, up at Merlo Field. She moved to Massachusetts for grad school just a year and a half later, and to DC after graduation to work for an education consulting firm. Though attending Timbers and Thorns matches every chance she could make it home, Maggie spent most of her time in the Timbers Army/Rose City Riveters far from Portland.

Soccer became Maggie's main tie to my hometown, and stepped up to become a leader of the East Coast Platoon and DC Federal Reserves before moving back to Portland in 2017.
