Meghan Pembroke is expected to start Aug. 7. She will earn about $88,000 a year.
Pembroke has eight years of experience in media and public relations. She comes to the city from Seattle Children's Hospital where she served as a senior public relations specialist. Before that, Pembroke spent six years in communications with the Washington State Department of Transportation.
She holds a master's degree in English literature from Washington State University and a bachelor's degree in English literature and writing from Whitworth University.
Pembroke was nominated WSDOT Communicator of the Year in 2010. She replaces Kate Reardon, who resigned in June, saying she was leaving to accept "a new and exciting career opportunity."
Reardon is the wife of Aaron Reardon, former Snohomish County executive, who stepped down as county executive at the end of May following a series of scandals.
