About Seattle



The Seattle area is one of the healthiest populations in the country: rich in scenery, parks, trails, and recreation. It is a destination city for people who value a high-quality of life. The city is nestled between two mountain ranges – the Olympics and Cascades. Seattle is the home of professional baseball, soccer, and football sports teams, world-class theater, ballet and opera companies and more than 70 different neighborhoods which are as diverse as the people who live here. Seattle schools have more than 60 different culturally and ethnically diverse students – and many people of color serve in elected office

The Seattle area developed as a technology center during the turn of the century with a steady stream of software, biotechnology, and internet companies emerging in the city that led to an economic revival of the Seattle Metropolitan area in the 1990s. The city’s population surged by almost 50,000 and continues to witness a steady stream of growth to this day. In 2016, Seattle was the fastest-growing major city in the United States with an annual growth of 3.1%. ULMS partners with many Fortune 500 companies that are headquartered or have established large offices in the Seattle Metropolitan region including Microsoft, Nordstrom, Amazon, Starbucks, Google, Facebook, and UPS, among others.
