I will seek solutions to improve our city's infrastructure, improve our transportation systems and address challenges around accessibility.


As the daughter of Ethiopian refugees, I have experienced the struggles that many residents face. SeaTac deserves a strong economy that celebrates diversity, natural resources and small businesses. Affordable housing, transportation access and community safety are issues that need to be addressed with compassion and respect. I am committed to serve and amplify the voices of all our residents so that policies benefit our community now and for generations to come.

Education: Doctorate, Education Leadership: Seattle University. Masters Business Administration: Boston University. Bachelors, Psychology: Seattle Pacific University
Occupation: Retired Police Commander, International Senior Police Advisor, Documentary Film Producer

With more than 30 years in public service, I am uniquely qualified to address the public safety concerns of SeaTac.  As Public Safety Committee Chair, I presented initiatives to Congress addressing Human Trafficking, Opioid Abuse, and Gun Violence!  Public Safety is my Top Priority, and I will continue to work with our First Responders to maintain/improve our Police, Fire, and Medical services.


Our airport proximity creates economic benefits but also creates significant health and environmental impacts.  I am a strong proponent of the quiet skies movement, ultrafine particulate studies, and alternate airport siting initiatives.  I am currently producing a feature documentary addressing the impacts of airport operations on our neighborhoods.


To Improve our quality of life, I will continue to support an aggressive sidewalk program, safe routes to school, and programs for our seniors and young people at our parks, Senior Center, and YMCA. I would be honored to serve!

Occupation: Seattle Public Utilities, Utility Account Representative, 11 years

When I'm on the City Council, you can be assured that SeaTac will remain fiscally responsible by keeping taxes down and preventing waste and abuse.  My common-sense approach will ensure the City controls expenses through responsible and transparent budgeting. I will strive to enhance the value of city services to all of us, promoting fairness, diversity, and prosperity among families, unions, businesses, and city government.


My experience working for Seattle Public Utilities and involvement with SeaTac citizen advisory committees is exactly what we need to maintain SeaTac's recent stellar record – moving from deficit to surplus within 1 year.  I know the challenges and potential of local government.  My goal is to ensure that the SeaTac City Council continues to work for you, to make your life better and attract more local businesses. My husband and I have lived in SeaTac since 2017 and care deeply about this community.
