Education: St. Francis, Aviation HS, Washington State University, Columbia, London School of Economics, Harvard Kennedy School
Occupation: Political Director, Congressman Derek Kilmer

I love serving my hometown. Growing up in Burien, I worked for local businesses to put myself through school. Now, I get to help working Burien families like my own. As your City Councilmember, I’ve worked hard on pandemic recovery, lower utility tax bills for seniors, and funding police and emergency services.

I’m running for another term because we still need to do better. Burien is facing more challenges around public safety and homelessness. We need partners at every level to connect people with help, improve our housing supply, and address gun violence in our neighborhoods. I’ll also work to bring more businesses and jobs to Burien, including by focusing more on commercial zones. Together, we can build a community that’s safe, prosperous, and vibrant.

Endorsed by: Congressman Adam Smith, Councilmember Dave Upthegrove, Senators Joe Nguyen and Karen Keiser, Northwest Carpenters, UFCW Local 3000, Laborers 242, and neighbors across Burien.

Education: Education: Bachelor’s - Psychology - University of Washington, Masters Management – University of Phoenix
Occupation: Director – Human Resources/Operations – SEIU 775

As a single mom of two sons, raising my family in Burien, I want to be part of the change we want in our community.  My lived experience has shown me that we need leaders that genuinely care for our communities but will also bring communities into the decision making. My job isn’t just a source of income but a way for me to live my values working alongside employees and stakeholders creating better working conditions, wages, and benefits.  I’m proud of my volunteer work as a Board member & volunteer (CASA, my kids’ schools, etc.) to provide a voice for children in my community, but this isn’t enough. I’m running for this position because people like me who understand the everyday struggles of working families need to be at the table helping to make decisions, and not just advocating from the outside. Endorsed by SEIU & Working Families party.

In Burien we are leading with our values in assuring affordable housing for all, innovating in public safety, and protecting democracy when it is under threat. I would be honored to be part of that work with and for you as your Councilmember.


Housing is the solution to homelessness. Public safety is achieved through public thriving. Democracy demands that we protect each other, particularly those most vulnerable, including BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and people experiencing mental illness. We will expand on and protect the Affordable Housing Demonstration Project, the police diversion and co-response pilot, and the democratic values that inspire us to care for our neighbors.



In our community neighbors take care of each other. Our democracy only works when it works by and for us all. We cannot let outside voices of hate divide us as we work towards housing for all, safety for all, democracy for all.
