With 18 years in public service leading diverse, multidisciplinary teams, from first responders to skilled tradespeople, I’ll bring proven leadership and hands-on experience to our City Council.


As your councilmember, I'll harness this experience for a data-informed, community-focused approach, prioritizing public safety, affordable housing, and environmental preservation. This commitment means ensuring working families and seniors aren't priced out of our communities. It means safeguarding North SeaTac Park, our cherished green spaces, and improving public transportation. It involves investing in safe, welcoming neighborhoods where everyone in SeaTac can thrive.


My career has taught me to listen then act - an approach I'll carry into council. Devoted to our community, your feedback will guide my council work. With your support, we can shape SeaTac into a community that benefits everyone: seniors, workers, youth, immigrants, businesses, and all who call SeaTac home. Proudly Endorsed by SeaTac Councilmember Peter Kwon and LiUNA Local 242

As a mom, small business owner, SeaTac volunteer and longtime resident, I am committed to building a community that is safe, healthy and vibrant for my family, and yours. 


My priorities as a City Councilmember will focus on improving public safety and livability. I believe that everyone should feel safe in their homes and on our streets, and I am dedicated to working with law enforcement, community organizations, and residents to achieve this goal. Whether through traffic and speed enforcement, fast-tracking pedestrian safety improvements, protecting housing affordability for working families, or programs to reduce the impact of the airport on residents, I am committed to making our city a safer, healthier place to live.


Proudly supported by Labor Unions, King County Democrats, County Councilmember Dave Upthegrove, Port Commissioner Hamdi Mohamed, Mayor Jake Simpson, Deputy Mayor Senayet Negusse and Councilmember Mohamed Egal. I would be honored to earn your vote.
