I have lived in Tukwila for over 30 years and I raised my family here. I truly understand the needs and concerns of my neighbors. We as a community are appoaching an uncertain budget cycle that will need real experience and leadership. I'm someone who understands how important it is to fund law enforcement and who can guide us through this historic transition of our fire department to a new agency. I promote new housing development and support maintaining our infrastructure. I will work to keep Tukwila affordable.


Tukwila needs a direct and honest individual that will share with them what is really going on in our city. My word to you is that I will be the calming voice that you can rely on to represent you.


Supported and Endorsed by: King County Democrats, current and former elected officials, labor groups and your friends and neighbors.

As your council member, I will be devoted to building a healthy, affordable, and safe Tukwila. I will prioritize funding vital human services, promote housing affordability and protect our green spaces. My experience as a nurse for over a decade will help me collaborate with regional partners to tackle homelessness, improve mental health, and address drug treatment.


My commitment extends to creating living wage jobs, ensuring public safety, and reducing barriers for small businesses to enhance economic opportunities for everyone. Listening to the community and seeking your input is my core value. I will proactively respond to your needs, address rising living costs, infrastructure concerns, and revitalize our local economy.


Together, we can bring new ideas and perspectives to benefit Tukwila and create an inclusive and thriving city we can all take pride in. I humbly ask for your vote for Position 4.
