Occupation: Legislative Assistant, Washington State Senate

I am committed to helping Snoqualmie remain one of the best places in our state to live and raise a family. My career has been focused on serving others and bringing people together. During the pandemic, as staff to a local State Senator, I personally helped families, small business owners, and unemployed workers access assistance.


I understand how government is supposed to work and how it can benefit everyone – from young adults to families to seniors. I will use my experience navigating complicated policy to produce better outcomes for Snoqualmie.


I’ll bring a new generation of leadership to the Council. I support building a pool in Snoqualmie and expanding our community center. We also need to maintain our roads and repair our sidewalks, work with regional partners to efficiently address housing affordability, and smartly manage growth to preserve our open spaces. I would be honored to earn your vote.

As your Incumbent City Councilmember, I have been Your voice in the process, ensuring that every decision is in the best interest of our citizens. I believe in our shared civic values and our community’s potential and I recognize the challenging decisions facing our local government.


My vision for Snoqualmie continues to be one that finds balanced revenue sources that are not solely reliant on additional growth and continuing to be a champion for managing future growth responsibly, fostering open community participation and engagement, ensuring the safety of our neighborhoods, protecting the unique character of Historic Snoqualmie, and reducing taxes and fees – but not by sacrificing essential community services.


We are at a critical juncture for Snoqualmie’s future. If re-elected, I will continue to be an advocate of our citizens’ interests and the strong, independent leader that Snoqualmie has asked for. I would appreciate your vote.
