Karter bio photoKarter Booher, originally hailing from the final frontier up north (Alaska), comes to the Bus by way of Tacoma. After working for some great candidates in Alaska, Karter made his way to the City of Destiny to attend PLU. When not at the Bus you will most likely find Karter cooking for friends & family, listening to podcasts, cheering for the Sounders, or hanging out with his handsome pup, Dobby.  Karter has been on the Bus since 2012 and is now the  Fellowship Coordinator. In addition to helping drive the Bus, Karter currently serves on the Board of Director for the Ingersoll Gender Center; supporting the transgender community in the Puget Sound area and across the state.
