Education: Bachelor’s in American Cultural Studies & Master’s in Education, Western Washington University
Occupation: Public Safety Exams Administrator

I have spent over a decade dedicating my life to public service as a Public Safety Exams Administrator for the City of Seattle, and as a Water District Commissioner. I’m running for Des Moines City Council to cultivate a more transparent and collaborative City Council. I am deeply invested in the safety and care of Des Moines, and will work every day to uplift the voices of community members to push for a more inclusive, community-centered Des Moines. 


To increase engagement in the decision-making process, we have to build relationships, trust, and communication to have a better understanding of the needs of our community. We have a lot of work to do but together we can find creative, bold, and collaborative solutions to address our toughest problems. I humbly ask for your vote.


I am proudly endorsed by City Councilmember Gene Achziger and 33rd & 30th LD Democrats!
