One of main reasons we can provide the services we do in such an efficient way is because we make the extra effort to ensure our staff and management positions are filled by the right people. Anne Jannetti, Carol Mizoguchi, and Ken Short are the right people.
We can’t wait to introduce you!
Anne is a key member of the Advancement team, as the Mission Advancement Officer, she is responsible for stewarding major donor relationships and creating new ones. Anne feels passionately that securing gifts for Compass is just part of her work. She wants to come alongside people that care about who we serve and to help them invest in the mission in a way that’s right for them (or as she would put it, in a way that makes their hearts sing).
“It’s a joy and an honor to connect, engage, and inspire people to support Compass and the important work we do. And the way that we walk alongside our neighbors in their journey home is so unique and affirming. We go with them and that makes my own heart sing.”
Anne most recently served as the Development Manager for Congregations for the Homeless and has also worked with the United Way of both King and Snohomish Counties. Before coming to her “heart work” in nonprofit through a long-term volunteer experience at Seattle Goodwill that led to a role on their Board of Directors, Anne held roles in finance and commercial real estate.
Carol is our Director of Emergency Services and leads our emergency services in the Compass Center, and our enhanced emergency shelters – Jan & Peter’s Place, Blaine Center, and Otto’s Place. She is also a member of our Executive Leadership Team.
“Compass has a century-long history of working with individuals and families that do not have homes or are experiencing housing instability. Compass has a commitment to deliver services in a trauma-informed way that allows our guests to maintain their dignity during their time of need.”
She brings 30 years of experience to the position and before she came to Compass, was leading the Office of Community Services in the City of Alexandria, Virginia. Before that, she worked with the United States Department of Health and Human Services in the Office of Family Assistance in Washington D.C.
Carol has deep familial and career roots in Seattle and wanted to come back to this area after her time on the east coast. She cares deeply and approaches her work through a relationships and coalition creating lens.

His portfolios have included market rate, tax credit, HUD, and senior communities throughout multiple states. During his career, he has been heavily involved with numerous renovation projects and lease-ups working closely with developers, owners, and construction companies. Ken is a graduate of John Brown University and held accreditations as a Housing Credit Certified Professional and Certified Professional of Occupancy.

“I have spent most of my property management career assisting numerous non-profits to provide safe, quality affordable housing. Even though I was a managing agent, I have been dedicated to their missions and shared many of their core values. When the opportunity arose to join Compass Housing Alliance I was thrilled because joining them has put me on the forefront of this pursuit.”
