Syble moved to Clark County in the early 70’s and has been a community advocate volunteering with several nonprofits from the beginning. She is currently a long-standing director of the Park Foundation, a previous commissioner of the Vancouver Parks and Recreation Board (PRAC), now serving as a liaison between the Park Foundation and PRAC, and is on the FISH (Families in Service to Humanity) Board of Directors.
Syble has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and Social Science, along with being Certified in Conflict Resolution, Mediation and Trauma Intervention. She began her career at Educational Service Districts 112 and 189, then went on to a 34-year career at Vancouver Housing Authority where she retired to spend more time serving in areas of her passions: children, elderly and animals.
The above embraces the reason why Syble is enthusiastic and dedicated to the Park Foundation because of all it does to assist in providing wonderful, creative, and enjoyable neighborhood and community parks for everyone in Clark County to enjoy: trails to walk, run, bike, bird watch; water ways for swimming, boating of all sorts, fishing, and just getting out in nature to appreciate the great Northwest and all it has to offer!
As for her favorite park, she feels there are too many delightful parks in Clark County to select just one, so shared a few of her top choices: Moulton Falls, Vancouver Lake, Frenchman’s Bar, Salmon Creek, Lacamas Lake, Felida and Esther Short Park.
