Since being unanimously appointed last year, I've been hard at work for you. I've earned a reputation for asking tough questions, researching the issues, and stopping votes when I need more information. I make informed decisions and ensure residents have a watchdog at City Hall.

I've trudged through mud with Kent Police Officers to see homeless camps firsthand, met with employers and educators on workforce training needs, and regularly advocate for residents on individual issues.

My problem-solving approach has earned me two regional appointments that are important to Kent – the King County Aging and Disabilities Advisory Council and the newly formed King County Affordable Housing Committee. I'm also a working, commuting, mom and wife who brings this perspective to City Hall. Together, we can make Kent a better place for all of us. I'm endorsed by Mayor Dana Ralph, my fellow Councilmembers, City Employee Union, and local labor organizations.

I love the city of Kent! That said, Kent is growing, and growing fast. We need to focus on Safety, Stewardship and Service. I am a member of the City of Kent Police Diversity Task Force, a Commissioner on the City of Kent Parks and Rec Commission, Deacon of my Kent-based church, and Director of my homeowner’s association.


During my campaign, I have listened to you. I have heard the common themes around Safety, Homelessness and Taxes. On the City Council, I will advocate for more police officers, swift accountability for those who break the law, and innovative, non-tax revenue sources.


My wife and I are so proud of our 5 kids and have called East Hill home since 2012. I am deeply vested in the City of Kent and will ensure we respect our past while maximizing our future. I would be proud to have your vote!
