Education: Culinary Arts Degree (including business/financial operations) - Le Cordon Bleu Western Culinary Institute
Occupation: Newcastle City Councilmember and Deputy Mayor, Professional Chef, Community Volunteer

As a 10-year resident of Newcastle, my peers and neighbors have consistently elected me to serve in leadership positions, such as PTSA president for my children’s school, President of my neighborhood association, and your City Councilmember/Deputy Mayor. I value collaboration, encourage conversations, and actively listen to all perspectives to find the best way forward.


As your City Councilmember, I make decisions focused on the best interests of all residents. I have led budget negotiations prioritizing safety, equity, sustainability, and a thriving community. I have established relationships with regional leaders, resulting in nearly $1M in grants that have paid for the completion of the Cross Town Trail, repairs to the Lake Boren Fishing Dock, and the Historic Cemetery Fence. Please re-elect me on November 7!


Endorsements: Senator Wellman, Representatives Senn and Thai, Former Mayor John Dulcich, Former Deputy Mayor Tony Ventrella, KingCounty and 41st District Democrats, KingCounty Young Democrats, and more!

I’m running for City Council because I love Newcastle and want to make it a better place to live for all us residents.  I believe in promoting and implementing policies that unify and benefit us all, not just the select few.  I will pursue policies such as providing more social benefits for our seniors, improving safety and security of our neighborhoods, ensuring equal representation of our diverse ethnicities, supporting a sensible and balanced budget that serves all interests without additional burdensome taxes, encouraging business growth that supports and enhances our city, improving road safety, repairs, and traffic flows, especially during work hours, and preserving our wonderful natural environment, trails and historic sites.


I believe that my proven professional skills, keen love and commitment to our community, and ability to unite people for the common good, make me the ideal candidate to bring balance and cooperation to our Council and community.
