Mona Locke returns from China to work for Susan G. Komen foundation

Mona Locke, wife of Ambassador to China Gary Locke, is returning to Seattle.

She will begin work Aug. 1 as a consultant to Susan G. Komen Puget Sound while it searches for a new executive director. Cheryl Shaw resigned as director in June to work with the poor or homeless in the United States and abroad.

Komen spokesman Jim Clune said Mona Locke was available for temporary work with the charity because she is moving back to the Seattle area so the older two of the Lockes’ three children can attend high school here.

“She will commute to Beijing to be with Gary,” Clune said.

Mona Locke, who was executive director of Komen Puget Sound from 2007 to 2009 and the parent organization’s national operations director until 2011, will work part time in August and full-time from September through December.
