I was unanimously appointed to Shoreline’s Council in January and have been working hard to represent our city since. My background is in journalism and community relations for humanitarian and philanthropic organizations. I championed causes including civic engagement, hunger, and large-scale disaster relief, but there is something special about serving the city my family calls home.


My involvement in Shoreline began as a volunteer with the Parks Board, protecting the green spaces, programs, and resources our city offers. I continue to advocate for green spaces on the Council and was instrumental in giving voters a choice for parks this November.


As the only council member living East of I-5, development is impacting my neighborhood. I will stay vigilant as we grow into a transit-oriented city, advocating for our community values and quality of life. I am endorsed by the 32nd Legislative District Democrats and I humbly ask for your vote.

My single mother worked double shifts as a nurse to put food on the table for our family. I know what it’s like to struggle to make ends meet. This story is too common these days. This instilled perseverance, kindness, and honesty within me.

I have seen seniors, veterans, and families forced to leave their homes because they can no longer afford them. Our friends and neighbors are concerned for the future of our schools, the general well-being and maintenance of the community, our parks, and the quality and accessibility of city services.

I moved from Venezuela to the United States in 2001 and became a naturalized citizen in 2014. I am living the American Dream, and I want to give back to this city. I promise to remain approachable, respectful and kind to all of the citizens of Shoreline. I humbly ask for your support, and your vote.
