Occupation: Deputy Mayor, Councilmember City of SeaTac; Program Manager, King County

As your Deputy Mayor, my goal is to create a safe, accessible, and welcoming community. Throughout my term, I made real progress for SeaTac. I increased access to affordable housing and spearheaded public safety initiatives, such as the life jacket station at Angle Lake and a business watch program. I focused on making our communities more walkable, livable, and inviting.


During the pandemic, I led workforce development initiatives to increase access to family-wage jobs and secured grants for human services and local businesses, all while maintaining a healthy city budget and without increasing your city taxes. I understand the challenges residents face. SeaTac needs leadership that listens and values different perspectives. Together, we can make SeaTac stronger, safer, and more welcoming. I hope to earn your vote.

As a third-generation SeaTac resident, I want to see our community thrive and reach its full potential. I want to give back, to my children and yours.


With three decades of professional experience managing organizations, from a small local shop to today, where my work impacts hundreds of thousands worldwide, I understand what's needed to implement change.  I’ve spent 20 years leading major corporations in transformation. People are at the heart of every change, and SeaTac residents and neighbors want enhanced neighborhood security and improved public safety. Change is never easy, but it is possible. Bringing people together and creating change is what I do best; it's what I’ve brought to every job I’ve ever held, and it's what I will bring to SeaTac if elected.


Peter Kwon convinced me to run for City Council to continue improvements and enhance positive transformations in SeaTac. Please give me that chance.
