Education: Central Washington University BS Engineering, Journeyman Lineman

Our growing diverse city needs accountable, community-focused leadership. A leader who understands the value of hard work, has life experience, knows the challenges facing working families, and strives to make Tukwila a welcoming place for all to reach their potential.


As a first generation American to my immigrant mother, being homeless, moving multiple times as a kid, a bright future was not always clear. My life journey taught me to work hard, stay focused, and always look to help others. I’ll lead in public safety improvements, be a responsible steward of our tax dollars, address homelessness, invest in public safety, law enforcement, seniors and youth programs, and infrastructure.


I’m proud to be the candidate endorsed by the Tukwila Firefighters; MLK Labor Council; SEIU childcare workers; UFCW grocery and healthcare workers; Teamsters; Building Trades; Aerospace Machinists; Executive Dow Constantine, Councilmembers Cynthia Delostrinos Johnson and Zak Idan; community leaders; and more!

Occupation: Senior Administrative Assistant, Seattle University

As a first generation American and child of Armenian-Ukrainian refugees, I was raised in this wonderful city and am proud to call it home. As a neighbor, volunteer, and community leader, I have seen Tukwila change over time and am committed to ensuring it thrives in the future. I am dedicated to serving both new and long-term members of the community.

You may have seen me volunteering with Tukwila Safety Bond, Tukwila School Levy, Tukwila Children’s Foundation and Action Tukwila. I am eager to work with you to continue to make Tukwila a great place for all its residents. If elected, I will focus on housing issues, public safety, supporting schools and living wage jobs. I will be honored to have your vote.

Endorsed: Congressman Adam Smith; Councilmembers Verna Seal, Cynthia Delostrinos, Kathy Hougardy, Zak Idan, Thomas McLeod and Kate Kruller; State Representatives David Hackney and Steve Bergquist; and more.
