Lara Herrmann is a partner and senior attorney at Herrmann Scholbe. A human rights and environmental activist at heart, Lara is one of the founders of Walk the Waterfront. As a long time resident of Tacoma and business owner, she is an advocate for protecting the quality and accessibility of the waterfront for the community. Lara believes that Tacoma's Waterfront is the soul of the city, and hopes that one day instead of only jogging the 2 miles along Ruston Way with her baby stroller, she will be able to jog from Pt.
