Polly Jirkovsky Gual

Polly Jirkovsky Gual is super excited to work on outreach and expansion as the Community Connector for the Southern Region. Polly has worked at a variety of nonprofits in the Seattle area, working on issues of homelessness and harm reduction.

She wants to continue learning about the connections between oppression, isolation and health disparities, and believes that communities have the power to heal and strengthen. She has led over 20 PEPS groups including Newborn, Baby Peppers and Little Peppers.

Education: Polly has a BA in English from Earlham College and a Master of Public Health from the University of Washington.

Outside of PEPS: Polly lives in the Central District with her husband, two kids and one rambunctious puppy. She is a voracious reader, an active member of her Quaker Meeting and listens to way too many podcasts.

Quote: “It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are still alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them.” —George Eliot
