About Whitney Mason, Coldwell Banker Bain Associates
My Dad always told me I could be whatever I set my mind to, and my Mom always said to be a person of independent means, so I've always believed that financial independence is key to personal freedom: following one's dreams, leading a happy, healthy and productive life, and contributing to one's community." Originally from Seattle, after graduation from Queen Anne High School and a year studying in Brussels, Belgium, Whitney earned her BS/MS degrees in journalism at Northwestern University. She joined the Marine Corps, and after having to repeat Officers Candidate School (OCS) due to a broken foot, she earned her commission with active duty assignments in Okinawa, Japan; Parris Island, SC; Headquarters Marine Corps, Washington DC; MCAS Beaufort, SC. After serving 11 years on active duty in logistics & public affairs, Whitney converted to the Marine Corps Reserve. In civilian life, Whitney worked as an executive director for two non-profit animal shelters in Virginia and Colorado respectively. When the Marine Corps offered Whitney an opportunity to serve in her hometown, she headed back to Seattle with pets in tow, where she completed her Reserve service assisting fellow Marines transitioning to civilian life and the local recruiting effort, retiring in 2014. Since 2005, Whitney's civilian career has been in residential real estate - she is a broker with Coldwell Banker Bain in Seattle. She most recently co-chaired her 30th OCS platoon reunion and researched and wrote a chapter on the building of a school in Seattle for a neighborhood history book. She has served a foster parent and is a member of several local professional & charitable organizations. She loves animals, reading - especially current events, history & historic fiction, art & design, the outdoors & travel.
