Darcey Quinn first made an appearance in Cleveland, Ohio. However, before the age of one, she would make the first of 23 moves throughout the US and Europe, finally landing in Seattle in 2001. Darcey holds a BA from both Michigan State and the University of Washington. She has worked in automotive plants, in manufacturing and for software companies. For the last 15 years, she has run the operations for a small video game company.
Darcey loves to travel. She has visited 45 US states and 31 countries throughout Europe and Asia. Because of all these experiences, Darcey likes to say that she has met a lot of characters and has built a lot of character. Her travel experiences constantly remind her of the interconnection and interdependence of all sentient beings.
Darcey was introduced to the dharma in March 2011, when she attended an Intro to Buddhism class at Nalanda West. She was lucky to meet Ponlop Rinpoche a few months later and became his student in November 2011. While following the Nalandabodhi Path, she also has been involved with membership, dues, finances, communications, service and recently completed just over three years as Seattle Sangha Director. Darcey was part of His Holiness Karmapa’s household during his Seattle visits in 2015 and 2017, and organized a large private event in 2017 introducing His Holiness to state and local dignitaries.
