Indeterminate Sentence Review Board Member TaTeasha Davis

TUMWATER – Governor Jay Inslee has appointed TaTeasha Davis to Washington’s Indeterminate Sentence Review Board, a quasi-judicial board located within the Department of Corrections that hears cases, conducts hearings, oversees supervision violation hearings and provides services to victims of inmates under the board's jurisdiction.

“I consider it a privilege to serve the community in this capacity,” Davis said.

With experience in the areas of bankruptcy, wills, personal injury and family law, Davis owned a private practice in downtown Seattle from 2008 to 2015. She became a staff attorney for YWCA Pierce County in 2015, where she represented victims of domestic violence and participated in social justice work. She returned to private practice in 2019 with Bighorse & Associates, PLLC, a family law firm in Tacoma.

Since 2019, Davis has volunteered at Catherine's Place in Tacoma, a non-profit organization that offers legal advice to women who have experienced domestic violence.

The governor appointed Davis to the Indeterminate Sentence Review Board in July 2020. Her term began on July 15, 2020 and ends on April 15, 2021. Davis was appointed to replace Tana Wood, who retired from her on-call board member seat.
