CO-FOUNDER & CONSULTANT
Linda Pransky went to graduate school at The University of Washington in 1975. She specialized in psycho-social nursing, because she had an interest in learning how people change. She learned techniques and approaches to helping people, but nothing seemed long-lasting and beneficial. When she met Sydney Banks in 1976 she saw a way for people to really change. Her vision became one of helping people seek real and long lasting change. Linda is currently on the executive committee of the Three Principles Global Community, and is a recent faculty member for the One Thought Institute and Partner at Pransky and Associates.
Kara Stamback, M.S. has always had a passion for helping people and growing up with George and Linda Pransky, her early exposure to the Principles gave her the vehicle to do that. After earning her graduate degree in psychology she began her career with Pransky and Associates, and alongside her sister, Erika, developed a set of online training programs.
When she’s not working, Kara enjoys spending time with her husband and three children and going to the movies.
Erika Bugbee, M.A. has spent twenty years helping individuals, families, couples and executives. Erika is a former partner at Pransky and Associates where she spent the first 18 years of her career. Erika co-founded the Online Learning Division of Pransky & Associates and is co-creator of a set of online courses. So far these courses have reached 35 countries and continue to spread.
Erika has since started her own practice to follow her passion of specializing in teens, young adults, and parents. She earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in psychology through University of Oregon and City University, respectively. She lives outside Seattle, Washington with her husband of 20 years, two teenagers, and two dogs.
Terri Cunningham started working for Pransky and Associates as Office Manager in 1992. She was raised in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains but is delighted to call an equally beautiful area, the fabulous Pacific Northwest, home. Terri has worked closely with Pransky and Associates over the years and continues to wear many hats in the organization. Married to her high school sweetheart Rick for over thirty years, they have raised three daughters and counts learning about the principles as the biggest blessing throughout the ins and outs of parenting. She is a published author of mysteries and in her spare time she enjoys baking, hanging out with her family, crocheting and writing.
Jennifer Westra is the newest addition to the Pransky team. Coming from an entrepreneurial background, she had her own seamstress business for several years. During that time, she discovered a passion for digital marketing and storytelling, which eventually brought her to her role here. Not knowing the Principles before, Jennifer was beyond delighted to discover an understanding that truly aligned with her own perspective on life.
When she's not working on the website or answering emails, Jennifer and her husband are rebuilding an old home on several acres in the beautiful Skagit Valley. She also enjoys sewing, photography, and making her own natural home products.
