I am a Tyee graduate that went on to earn my Bachelor's degree from Evergreen State College, and my Master's degree from City University of Seattle. This is my third year at Cascade. I love working with children and families, and being a resource. Outside of school I like to watch soccer, garden, read, and go on adventures exploring towns, and vacations with my husband and two kids.

Ingebjorg McGrady - 7th Grade

Ingebjorg McGrady

I was born and raised in Norway. After high school I moved to New York where I attended college and graduate school to become a school counselor. I moved to Washington in 1996 and worked in the Snohomish school district for several years. I started working as a school counselor at Cascade in 2006. The middle school years are very important developmentally and academically and it's exciting to be part of a team that helps our students go from childhood to young adulthood. I love working at Cascade because I am always learning something new from students and families, and I get to work with the school's amazing staff. Outside of school I enjoy being a mom, spending time with my family, cooking and traveling.

Alexa Wayman - 8th Grade

Alexa Wayman

I was born in Seattle, but grew up in the woods across the water in Seabeck. I moved to Seattle in 2006 when I went to Seattle University (go Redhawks!) and I stayed here ever since. Before working at Cascade I worked with our district’s high school alternative programs for six years. I started working at Cascade in 2019 and I’m so happy to be a part of our school community. I love being a Counselor because I get to help young people overcome challenging times in life and take control of their futures. In my free time I love to knit, preserve fruits and veggies while they’re in season (I make delicious plum jam!), camping and hiking, and gardening. My favorite author is Zadie Smith and my favorite color is green.
