Education: A.A. from Highline College, Sociology
Occupation: fmr Burien Councilmember, Deputy Mayor; VP Business Operations, Seattle Seawolves

I had the honor of representing Burien and its people on the Council once before. I am running again because we are sliding backwards, and our working families deserve representation by leaders who know how to collaborate with regional partners and take decisive action on issues that affect us directly: homelessness, public safety, affordable housing, and the environment.


I’m proud of my work to establish tenant protections during my previous term, and am committed to taking action on our issues rather than push problems to another city. I fully support Burien’s commitment to ‘lead with services’ in order to shape a city where we can all feel safe, and that includes opposing efforts to criminalize homelessness instead of finding solutions. 


Endorsed by: 33rd/34th LD & KC Democrats; Working Families Party; County Councilmember Joe McDermott; Burien Councilmembers Hugo Garcia & Sarah Moore; MLK Labor; Highline teachers, Burien business owners & more.

I’m running for City Council for the same reason I’m active in our community: because I want Burien to flourish!  If you’ve been to any city event, you’ve probably seen me– serving popcorn at Drive-in Movies on 153rd, emceeing B-Town Fiesta, or serving on the Discover Burien Board.


The truth is that our City’s struggling. Homelessness, crime, and drug use are out of control. People are frustrated by the Council’s lack of action. I know; my business was broken into twice– by the same person. I was told by the police they weren’t able to do anything.


I’ll bring a collaborative approach to Council and real, effective, and responsible policy solutions: increasing funding for community-based policing, partnering with the County and State to increase affordable housing and mental health & addiction treatment services, and growing our local economy by supporting small businesses across the city. I ask for your vote.
