King County residents founded the Port of Seattle in 1911 and it is still supported by your taxes today. I plan to lead with bold actions and big ideas like designating a portion of Port profits to eliminating Port-related pollution while mitigating environmental injustices in the Port’s neighboring communities. This ensures that the Port adds to the health and quality of life in our region.


CLEAR-Consulting.Biz, my executive search firm, helps Puget Sound social profits diversify their leadership teams and as a Port Commissioner, I’ll use my career skills to bring leaders together from neighboring counties and state levels to create more Green projects, invest in infrastructure that connects our regions, and do more business with diverse, environmentally friendly companies. I bring experience managing maintenance contracts for engine repairs, planning new routes, controlling costs, and building airline partnerships at Alaska Airlines, Northwest Airlines, and Continental Airlines. My past work as a healthcare strategy consultant for Blue Cross/Blue Shield and as an environmental scientist assessing commercial properties for environmental hazards means I would be the only Port Commissioner to bring institutional knowledge on day one from aviation, healthcare, and the environmental sectors.


SeaTac International Airport represents 70% - 80% of all Port of Seattle operations and is its greatest asset. Removing pollution from the supply chain of air travel is imperative if we want to continue to enjoy convenient international and domestic air service.  We must also provide good union living wage jobs for our workers in the airport, fishing, and shipping industries.


I am proudly endorsed by the 34th Legislative District Democrats (Burien, Vashon Island, West Seattle, White Center).

As your Port Commissioner, it’s my honor to create living wage careers, support workers and small businesses, and advance the Port’s actions to defeat climate change. I’m running for re-election to continue these efforts to build a Port aligned with our communities’ forward-thinking priorities and values.


Recovering from COVID, the Port must serve as an engine for job creation. That’s why I’ve fought to keep projects on schedule despite the pandemic, driving job growth and improving infrastructure that supports local businesses. Leveraging relationships with state and federal partners, I’m pushing for critical new projects, so our airport and seaport remain world class, competitive with the rest of the nation – and the world.


Drawing on my experience as a small business owner, we’re strengthening and creating new career and entrepreneurial pathways. Apprenticeships, workforce training, Maritime High School, and business development are cornerstones for continued growth. Coupled with equity-driven programs for underrepresented communities, we’re ensuring everyone has the opportunity to thrive and prosper.


I first ran for this office to accelerate our actions to address climate change. I’m proud to have led efforts to make our Port the nation’s most environmentally sustainable. We’ll continue our truly innovative approach in sustainable aviation fuels and complete decarbonization of the Seattle central waterfront, while driving more bold action to meet the scale of the climate crisis. The Port can serve as a global hub of the green economy, creating new industries and employment.
